Hawk Island Park, Lansing, Michigan

Located within the City of Lansing, Hawk Island County Park is a lovely gem of a park that offers year-round recreational activities. These photos are early fall photos, though, so you get to see flowers and greenery and such.

I took my new camera (a Canon Rebel SL3) out for a spin on September 7. I wanted to see what I would get from my 18-55mm and 55-250mm lenses, and Hawk Island Park seemed like a good place to do it.

I wish the sky had been a little less cloudy. I’ll go back sometime and photograph this area on a sunny day.

One can climb to the top of the tubing hill and get a nice view of the lake and the landscape.

Throughout the park, there are all sorts of flower and wildflower gardens.
