Residents of East Bay Township have been fortunate to have an area close to home where they can enjoy the peace and beauty of natural surroundings. It’s a place where for decades people have walked their dogs and allowed their children to venture off and build forts and explore make-believe worlds. From bird watching in the spring or a summer bike ride, a fall color hike or winter sledding adventure, this land provides year-round opportunities for recreation and refuge.

With undisturbed natural acreage in East Bay Township quickly diminishing, residents have stepped up to save this property for current and future generations to enjoy. This peaceful 80-acre piece of property, nestled just south of Holiday Hills with a public access off Five Mile road, has just been purchased via a bank loan.  We need your help in making the payments as well as ensuring funding for taxes and maintenance. This site has been created to foster awareness of the project as well as to assist in generating ideas for how we can ensure this property serves the needs of the community for years to come.

NEW: A 200 Acre East Bay Park Project is in discussion. How does this impact HWP? Click here to find out more!


Enjoy the preserve – but please refrain from camping/campfires, fireworks, and motorized vehicles on the preserve. Thank you!
