Cascade Peace Park is approximately 198 acres in size. This property consists of floodplain and meadow areas with extensive old growth forest. It is rare to find such a large block of mature hardwoods in the Grand Rapids metro area. Warblers, hawks, and owls benefit from the extensive closed-canopy forest. In spring, look and listen for migratory warblers and Scarlet Tanagers. In addition to the upland forest, this property has an open meadow and a small stream with associated wetlands and lowland forest.

This is a very well marked trail that makes customizing your hike simple. Today I did the main loop, north loop, and south loop. Peaceful area that is close to town. Was there in the fall when most of the trees had lost their leaves and could hear the occasional car go by. Otherwise very peaceful for being so close to town. We parked off of Grand River drive and the lot has space for probably 10-15 cars.

I frequent this trail, because it really is an oasis of peace on the edge of suburbia. The many possible loops and hilly terrain keep it interesting. Don't worry about getting lost; each intersection is clearly marked with a map. It really only gets busy on weekend afternoons.

It’s a nice park. It’s pretty. Quiet. But I found the trails quite confusing at times...they branch off quite a bit. You feel secluded. I’ve been there 4 times so far. It’s a little scary to go alone.

Trails should be marked differently and numbered. It is very, very easy to get lost at Peace Park!

Love this little park especially in fall. We also enjoy snowshoeing in winter months.
