City of Muskegon Heights

Mona Lake Park

Originally, the city was planning a 4th of July fireworks show in collaboration with Norton shores for a Holiday celebration in Mona Lake Park, however due to several concerns raised throughout the community about COVID-19 those plans were canceled in favor of a date later in the year.

The park remains closed this weekend for numerous reasons. These include the recent backslide in Michigan state COVID-19 cases - whereas our region was leaning toward moving from Phase 4 to Phase 5 in the Governor's reopening plan, local health officials indicate that our region is leaning toward moving back from Phase 4 down to Phase 3.

The lake levels remain excessively high, which cause the park to repeatedly flood and despite a recent dry spell the ground is still saturated. The park has been closed to vehicle traffic to prevent cars from driving on the park turf areas when trying to avoid driving through the water cover asphalt areas. The park has sustained considerable damage due to this behavior, while the recent lake levels have been this high or higher. DPW, maintains the park and it is the recommendation of the department to remain closed to vehicle traffic until the turf areas can be protected from auto traffic.

Also, the city is projecting deficits in revenue this year due to COVID-19 impacts on state based revenues and drastic cuts in local income tax revenues. This has reduced our ability to hire summer staffing for cleanup and maintenance of parks as well as vacant lots and streets.

Whereas neighboring cities have mechanisms in place that can generate revenue from their parks over the holiday, such that potential costs for preparation and cleanup can be offset, unfortunately there is no current mechanism for that type of additional revenue in our city.

The compilation of these and other issues have regretfully forced us to continue to keep Mona Lake Park closed to vehicle traffic through this weekend holiday period.

I live right by the Park. Would love to volunteer for clean up

Would be nice if you could put in the “real” docks instead of those useless wood ones that are underwater and do not allow your boat to be tied up to them.

Wow it took a stat for the City of Muskegon Heights to respond

Thanks for keeping us informed!

Why is this park closed because of Covid but every other park in town is packed? Reasoning?

Good news!!
