Look for new slips and docks, rack storage, food trailer, new restrooms and showers, full marine store, ice, picnic tables and grassy areas. Not everything will be ready for summer 2021. Please pardon our dust.

And some interesting things happening in the kiln! In the top pic, the base color of that clay is actually a pale blue, apparently derived from some of the blue/white clay trimmings that got mixed into some reclaimed clay used to make these rice bowls. I wasn’t aware of the blue, just expected it to come out the usual ‘oatmeal’ color from mixed buff and white reclaimed clay ... the other is a mix of blue and buff clay, with just a clear glaze.

Ta da! Check out the new connector path, which will take users from the Chippewa Trail to the GR Center without having to traverse the parking lot! This is a great addition for hiker and skiers, and it provides us with a new path to conduct our Maple Sugar programs from. Just like much of the work at GRNA, we have our volunteers to thank: Ken Masck, who coordinated the project, as well as Dean Crandall, who donated his time with the excavator. And on Saturday, we were extremely fortunate to have had our friends from Glacial Hills join us to put the finishing touches on the trail. Thank you, everyone!!

Our Story

Discover Alden tucked away on the beautiful shores of the 3rd most beautifu lake in the world, where you may uncover a real find! Who'd have dreamt there would be such pleasant shops and fine places to eat in a tucked-away village like Alden? No wonder everyone wants to keep it hush-hush. Its the kind of place you want to save and introduce to a good friend-as if it were your own personal discovery. A sleeper? That's part of the allure. The other part is the unusual and varied merchandise you'll findhere. Each shop has its own identity, with almost every one hosted by the owner/or a friend or two. Nestled beside Torch Lake (SAID TO BE THE WORLD'S THIRD MOST Beautiful LAKE.) Nature lovers will also consider Alden a real find. Tucked beneath a canopy of trees, this small town lies on the southeast shore of Torch Lake with its clear, Caribbean- blue waters and breathtaking beauty. Folks will often stop for an ice cream cone and stroll down to the harbor, or walk a little further to the Alden Depot, which has been restored as a museum and day park. A Short Stretch Away-If you’re up for a hike, a guided tour or some nature study, visit nearby Grass River Nature Area, Skegemog Swamp Pathway or the Coy Mountain Walking Trail. Of course there's always boating, swimming, biking, tennis, golf, snowmobiling and skiing available in the area as well.

Is there a phone number for contact information on events happening in Alden? I edit the calendar for the Northwest Voice and we include as many Alden events as e can. Other than the lovely folks at the library, there's no info on who to contact for the farmers' market or Alden Stroll information.
When does the farmer's market start up again?
Any events for Memorial Day Weekend?
Just closed on our house and picked up the keys yesterday. Excited to see what this little town holds for out little family. 🥰
