‪Save this property! It is a treasure!‬
سبتمبر 2020
‪What an incredible piece of history! Kudos to the township and park department for maintaining such a treasure. Built in the 19th century and still a wonder! Herb McCourtie was a very generous man AND must have had a huge streak of fun in him to want to create these detailed concrete trees and bridges to look like wood. Of course, it helped that his business was Concrete! And HUGE beautiful birdhouses that accommodate over 200 birds. Do read up on the history prior to visiting as it will enrich the time you spend here.‬

‪Nice for a picnic and a short ramble‬
يونيو 2020
‪A colleague at work recommended McCourtie Park several years ago, and I finally got around to visiting this June. The cement bridges are carved to look just like wood! They are fun to ramble across. Entrance was free. Parking was along the road. It is just off US 12. I was unable to find a map, so I don't think I saw all the bridges, but I had a good time.‬

‪Interesting Concrete Bridges and "Trees"‬
أغسطس 2019
‪The W. H. L. McCourtie Estate, originally called Aiden Lair and now known as McCourtie Park, is a recreational park located at 10426 South Jackson Road (at US 12) in Somerset Center, Michigan. McCourtie made a fortune in the oil business in Texas and founded his own cement company. In the 1920s, McCourtie returned to Somerset Center and in 1924 he purchased the family home and surrounding property and turned it into "Aiden Lair," a community center where he hosted multiple events. He continued hosting free community events well into the Great Depression.[2] McCourtie also hosted out-of-town luminaries; it is known that Henry Ford was a visitor to Aiden Lair.Around 1930, McCourtie hired two itinerant Mexican artisans, George Cardoso and Ralph Corona, to build 17 concrete bridges at Aiden Lair,[2] spanning the winding stream that flowed through the property.[6] Cardoso and Corona used a technique known as el trabejo rustico (known in French as faux bois), a Mexican folk art tradition where wet concrete is sculpted to look like wood.

This is a great place to take a stroll or have a picnic if you happen to be in the area. Don't miss the giant birdhouse. Sadly, the tavern is not open‬

‪This park is clean, well cared for, and would give something enjoyable to people of all ages. It can show how people entertained themselves in the past and provides plenty of room to run. I’m sure we will return here again.‬

‪Great place for a hike, picnic, or photography‬
الأصدقاء • يونيو 2018
‪What an awesome park! The concrete "wooden" bridges are whimsical and provided great subjects for a photography shoot. There's plenty of room to walk your dogs, walk along a stream, picnic, read under a tree, or catch a little of Jackson's history. If there is one thing I could to to improve the park, it would be to rid it of mosquitoes in summer -- but that's true of most of Michigan!‬

‪Sweet surprise‬
الأصدقاء • فبراير 2018
‪So, my friend and I are trying to break the winter blues and decide on a road trip to no where. We stumbled on this adorable little park with bridges galore. What a pleasant spot to stop and stretch our legs for a few. Definitely worth a short trip to or if you are in the Irish Hills area.‬
