Cross Park encompasses about 4 acres of mostly woodland on Main St. at the southern city limit. It borders the Dead Creek and is south of Bronner’s CHRISTmas Wonderland, along M-83. The park property was acquired and developed in celebration of the U.S. bicentennial. The 50 ft. white cross, illuminated after dark, is a tribute to the historical tradition of the Frankenmuth community. The Frankenmuth Historical Association operates the historic Wolkensdoefer Log House in the park for historical education.
