Lansing reopens large park that had industrial waste

– Lansing’s largest park, which closed more than a quarter-century ago when industrial waste was discovered there, is open again.

The city quietly reopened Crego Park this summer but officially marked its rebirth at a ceremony Thursday, the Lansing State Journal reported.

The 200-acre park was called Red Cedar Flood Basin Park before being renamed in honor of former Mayor Ralph Crego in 1970, Kaschinske said.

Crego Park was closed in 1986 after 200 drums of paint sludge and other toxic waste were found on the grounds.
