Grand Traverse Commons: Streamside Loop

Follow along one of the tributaries to Kids Creek as you walk beneath grand old maple and beech trees. Watch as the plant types change as you cross a bridge and follow a boardwalk through a stand of with cedar know as the “Cedar Cathedral.” The Grand Traverse Commons Natural Area is a 140-acre park with miles of unpaved trails that wander up, down, and around wooded hillsides, streams, meadows, and wetlands. The park is a part of the overall Grand Traverse Commons Redevelopment District and was originally a part of the former State Psychiatric Hospital. Hiking, biking, nature watching and cross-country skiing are all enjoyed at the park. Adjacent to the park on the east is The Village at Grand Traverse Commons, a redevelopment of the old State Hospital area containing a mix of retail, office, and residential uses.
