Frederik Meijer Gardens of Kent County, Michigan
2.7 miles long.
Recently, the Meijer Foundation has announced plans to donate $1 million to Michigan's White Pine Trail State Park, raising the total donations to the new state park from $2.1 to $3.1 million. This last donation stipulated that the state must name the trail the "Fred Meijer White Pine Trail," which originally made the state Parks Department turn down the donation and created a controversy over naming rights for private donations to public parks.
