Fallasburg Park Covered Bridge
One of only two covered bridges in Kent County is located at Fallasburg Park. This park is also the site of the Fallasburg Fall Festival. This juried arts and crafts festival is sponsored by the Lowell Area Arts Council and is held every year during the last weekend in September.
Park activities and facilities include: baseball diamonds, fishing, hiking, nature trails, an open shelterhouse, picnicing, playgrounds, an enclosed shelterhouse, and restrooms.
To get there, head North on Lincoln Lake Road out of Lowell about 5 miles to Fallasburg Park Drive (on the East side Lincoln Lake Road.) Follow Fallasburg Park Drive until you reach Covered Bridge Road on the right.

While you're at it, check out some other parks
Kent County has some other great parks as well. Siedman Park offers great X-C skiing, Wabasis Park has great campsites and a pretty good sledding hill in the winter.
The newest park is Millenium Park, which is still under development. Millennium Park is a unique, ambitious project which will return approximately 1500 acres of industrial land to publicly owned, urban, greenspace. Once completed, the park and facilities will touch four cities: Grand Rapids, Walker, Grandville and Wyoming, and be nearly 2 1/2 times larger than New York?s Central Park, making it one of the nation?s largest urban parks.
