Ada Township contains over 1,000 acres of public land available for recreational pursuits. The community's outstanding natural features have resulted in a number of regional recreational facilities being located in the area, including a large Kent County park and extensive State Game Area lands. In addition, Ada Township has four community parks operated by the township government and several school facilities available to the public.

The Parks, Recreation and Land Preservation Program is supported in part with funds from the Ada Township Parks Millages and the Parks and Land Preservation Millage. In August 2016 Ada township residents voted "Yes" to renew and combine these two millages into one Parks, Recreation, and Land Preservation Program millage.
