Carr Park
carr playgroundCarr Park is located on Lewis Avenue, north of Temperance Road in Temperance, Michigan. The property was originally deeded to the Upton Carr family by President Andrew Jackson in the 1830's. It subsequently was sold by the Carr Family to the Temperance Rotary Club to be designated as a park.
A six acre parcel of ground, Carr Park is a popular playground and recreational facility for children, residents and visitors of Bedford Township. In addition to various children's playground equipment, it features permanent grills, benches, picnic tables, and an over-hang shelter housing additional picnic tables. The park has a basketball court, two volleyball courts, two tennis courts and a ball diamond. It is used as one of the park sites in the Bedford Community Education Summer's Park Program.  To rent the shelter house, contact the Treasurer's Dept. at 734-224-7342.
