Kalamazoo Beaches - Ramona Park
Join me over the course of the next 5 weeks where I highlight some of the greatest beaches in and around Kalamazoo. For this week's highlight, it's gotta be Ramona Park over on Carrie & Sprinkle Road. Ramona Park is located at 8600 South Sprinkle Road and is just 20 minutes from the heart of downtown and has something for everyone. It’s a local favorite and has a sandy stretch of shoreline at Long lake that’s perfect for sunbathing, swimming and fishing. There’s also lifeguards on staff. You can rent kayaks, paddleboards or canoes. There’s a playground with picnic tables, BBQ grills, a concession stand, and a pavilion you can rent for gatherings. And if you’re into sports, they have tennis and pickleball courts, volleyball, basketball, soccer and football fields. There’s plenty of amenities for everyone to discover and enjoy so get out there and have some fun!
