Onondaga Township approached Ingham County this year hoping to purchase Baldwin Park from the county and assume responsibility of upkeep and management. The director of parks for Ingham County said it seems to be in favor of this plan because the park is not a lot of work, but is 12 miles from the park center. “It will just continue to get better because the county doesn’t have the time and resources to manicure it on a daily basis,” said the director of parks for Ingham county, Willis Bennett. The township felt like this was the right time to take over the park for a combination of reasons. “It is not a lot of upkeep for the park and we got a new board last year,” said Onondaga Trustee, Russell Bodell.
