Gales Pond County Park is located in Elbridge Township and is just under 19 acres in size. The park has a 2,500-foot handicap-accessible boardwalk that extends across the pond and links up with nature trails along the back portion of the park. Great for wildlife viewing.

The Oceana County Conservation District regularly uses the park for its Junior Ranger program that runs during the months of July and August of each year.  The Junior Ranger program provides nature-guided learning for children 11 years and younger.  The program often experiences a waitlist and is led by Ms. Kari Wilson and other staff at the conservation district.
