This property originally served as a fish hatchery for the State of Michigan, with trains loading tanks of fish for distribution throughout the state. In 1949, the property was deeded to Kent County by the State of Michigan for use as a county park.
Today, Dwight Lydell Park includes 39 acres of recreation space with natural areas in the heart of Comstock Park. Visitors enjoy walking or jogging laps around the park's paved trails. The park's two rentable open picnic shelters are popular for group picnic and events, with a nearby ball diamond, playground and fishing ponds.
