Bush Park is one of Fenton's largest parks. It is 5 and a half acres and was given to the City of Fenton by Harry C. and Doris E. Bush on December 18, 1954. Both the Fenton Rotary and the Downtown Development Authority have been very generous in supporting this park. The park has 2 entrances; one at the east end of Jefferson Street behind St. John's Catholic Church and the other on N Leroy Street at Fifth Street. The park is always open and has no entrance fees. The Shiawassee River runs through the park and provides a beautiful opportunity to experience peace in the city. There are volleyball courts, children's play equipment, a tot lot area, restrooms, a gazebo, a pavilion with electricity, picnic areas and a small island to enjoy. The park is open from sunrise to sunset.
