The Grand River is for Everyone
There are a lot of exciting projects happening in and along the Grand River. From restoring the rapids to creating equitable access to the river’s edge, we’re turning the community’s vision for a River For All into reality.
Explore 200+ acres of river edge parks. Run, walk or bike the network of trails along the banks. Attend year-round community events in the heart of the Grand Rapids with the Grand River as the backdrop. There are countless ways to connect with our river.
The Grand River has always been an important icon of Grand Rapids. The first people used it as means for transportation and a source for food. Later, it was a major driver of the logging and furniture boom. Today, the community is reconnecting with the river in more ways than ever.
