Black Lake Park is a 58 acre parcel, located near the southern boundary of Norton Shores, between Wood Road and the eastern shoreline of Little Black Lake. The park provides passive recreation opportunities for nature lovers with a number of bird, animal and plant species to observe.

In 2015, the City began to implement elements of the Park Master Plan, including developing extensive nature trails leading to two observation decks overlooking Little Black Lake, one located toward the northern end of the park and one located toward the south.
