Nestled right behind downtown Grass Lake is a scenic lakeside park. Grass Lake County Park has just about everything you could want at a park, and Big has enjoyed playing here every time we have visited. When we asked our followers to let us know their favorite place to play in Jackson County, many people listed this park as their top location, so we had to add it to our top five kid-friendly parks for the Summer Fun Bucket List!
