Attica Township Park

The 45-acre Attica Township Park is owned, operated and maintained by Attica Township and located behind Township Hall. The park was originally developed in the 1980s.  In 2007, the Township expanded the park property with the purchase of  5 acres of land located directly south of the existing park boundary.  In April of 2010, the Township purchased approximately 11 additional acres located southwest of the park, permitting the park to span from Peppermill Road to Payne Road.  Attica Township Park has been developed with an asphalt, multi-use path, three baseball diamonds, playground equipment, pavilions, and covered picnic areas.

Community Recreation Plan

The Township has developed a 2013-2018 Community Recreation Plan, which is intended to guide future Township parks and recreation programs, services, facilities, development, operations and maintenance for the five‐year term of the Plan.  The Recreation Plan, which can be downloaded here, was shaped by public input received via a survey and feedback provided at a public open house.  The Township will be applying for grant funds from the Department of Natural Resources to put toward updating park facilities and amenities over the next several years.  Oral comments regarding the Community Recreation Plan will be heard during the Attica Township Board Public Hearing on February 14, 2013 at 7:00 p.m. at Township Hall.  If you would like to support the Township in its effort to update the park, please contact the Township office.  An information brochure about the Attica Township Park can be downloaded here.
