Loved visiting this park when I was attending LCC in the mid to late 1990's. It is a small one block stretch of green between two busy streets. The grounds are beautiful and have always been well maintained. Glad to see that this is still the case.

This is a pretty little green space, one block square. It's nicely kept, flowers are always nice, plenty of benches. Convenient to LCC and downtown businesses.

The arch in this park is a significant monument to the automotive history of Lansing. Its the entrance to a 3 acre park donated to the City of Lansing by William C. Durant that is delightfully landscaped. The fountain no longer exists but the quiet beauty of the flora and fauna remains. The updated playground will captivate the young ones... More

Nothing too special, just a nice piece of green in the downtown area by LCC. Limited parking on the street.

It is a smaller park on a noisy street. It does have a playground for children. It puts you in the mind of Washington Square Park in New York City minus the performers. It would be a great place for the Lansing Community College students to congregate. They do usually have one of the concerts in the park there.

A nice little historic park. Great for picnics or just strolling around to see the artifacts. There is a historic arch and a little playground as well as some nice garden areas.

OK, i love Durant Park. We call it PONCHO park. There is a little tree there that I named Poncho. I was around when they first planted him and used to go visit him, try to make sure he was growing well. He's turned into a person tree! He's the cutest tree ever, so now we call this little park...

Durant Park is named after the founder of General Motors Corporation, William C. Durant. This automobile giant donated the land to the city of Lansing for the park. In 1924 the arch was built to honor this man.
