Recreation Programs - Adult,Youth & Families

Whatever the season, Ada Township Parks & Recreation Department offers programs for all ages on a variety of topics. Take a walk with a naturalist, enjoy a nature program with your preschooler, learn about birds of prey or bats while you get an up-close view of these beautiful and interesting animals, wander through the Roselle Park River Festival in September, or try your skills at cross-country skiing or snowshoeing! 

Discovery Days preschool programs are offered monthly for ages 3-5 with a parent or guardian. Get outside for a fun morning of nature study, hands-on activities, games, and a craft.

Contact the park office to register for a program.

Ada Village Kids' Garden

The Ada Kids’ Garden program meets Tuesdays from April through September. Kids, ages 9-12, will learn good gardening techniques, and get their hands dirty as they plant and weed their own garden and then sell their produce at the Ada Farmers Market. 4-H Junior Master Gardener (JMG) certification is an option again this year through a partnership with the MSU County Extension!
