About 500 yards south of 76th Street (on the East Beltline/M-37) on the east side of the road there is a hidden Jewell of a park.
The owner of this website purchased this property from an uncle (Uncle Paul Ruehs) whose father homesteaded the land in the mid 1800's.
Fred Ruehs and his family at one time owned 1000 acres of land in the Caledonia area and Fred's family donated the property where the Fred Reuhs park now is located in Alaska Michigan at the Thornapple River.
The "bottom-land" of this property is a natural watershed where rain waters wash from the surrounding hills and farmlands as the water drains into this pretty spot.
A park is now located in this watershed and the pictures below show another Outdoors Treasure in Michigan.
