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. 


Riverside Park is a large-scale regional park with open green spaces, natural habitats, and a variety of recreation amenities along the banks of the Grand River.  The City of Grand Rapids is evaluating future plans for this park to enhance access, sustainability, and vibrancy of this important public green space.
