The Silver Lake Recreation Area is located at 1785 N. East Silver Lake Road and measures about 84 acres in area. Amenities at the park include restrooms, grills, a tee-ball field, tennis courts, basketball courts, paved and unpaved walking trails, a sledding hill, and irrigated athletic fields. A paved trail loop surrounds the developed portion of the site and measures 3,700 feet long (seven-tenths of a mile). The unpaved trails, which meander around Hidden Lake and near the shores of the north branch of Silver Lake, total about 4,400 feet in length.
In February 2013 the Township adopted a park development plan that includes a lot of cool things such as improving barrier-free accessibility, building additional pathways and pavilions, developing an outdoor gym, making improvements to the ball field, and constructing a dog park. Keep an eye out for ongoing improvements!
