Project Background

Grand Rapids residents continue to emphasize that parks, natural spaces and safe recreational opportunities are an important part of our community. 

Every five years the City of Grand Rapids updates our parks master plan, which provides a road map for the long-term development and sustainability of our park system. 


The lodge at Roosevelt Park is an important community asset that needs major improvements to meet community needs. Currently, the upstairs of the building has a gymnasium and restrooms. The basement is the temporary home of the Thrive Outside Gear Library.

We're working with neighbors to create a new vision for this space!
