Railroad Square

Kalkaska’s Railroad Square sits at the heart of the village’s downtown. Once an abandoned lumberyard, this community hub includes a permanent home for the farmer’s market, a food truck court with a covered eating area, a  three-season pavilion with restrooms and  a commercial kitchen available for rent, a new clock tower fronting US-131, and street parking.

An event lawn space with bench seating, a pedestrian trail, and a plant buffer to guard the existing rail line creates an inviting space for all to enjoy.

Easily located right off US-131, Railroad Square provides a wide-array of options for the public to visit and enjoy its facilities. 

For more information about rentals and use of Railroad Square contact Kalkaska Village Hall - 231 258 9191
