  • Great Outdoor location and walking trails, good for Leashed Pets, wish they had more donors to provide cash to expand but a cute little zoo like area with natural wildlife. Fun for Kids and good for History of the local area.
  • A hidden jem! Great time had at the Sugarbush Festival. Love the new welcome center.
  • Great trail system, although it tends to be overly muddy almost year-round. Lots of wildlife (birds) in the area, great visitor center, friendly staff, and lots of volunteer and outreach programs.
  • Great place to go. older gentleman named Garrett is the best volunteer they have
  • Love walking around this place, and it is extremely cheap. Wear outdoor shoes though as it can get dirty! They have a beautiful facility!

Where to stay in Grand Rapids

Only five hotels provide lodging downtown, but each charms its guests with a distinctive character. A small collection of bed and breakfasts and inns populate Old Town. These hotels are a five-minute walk from the city's main attractions, top restaurants, and conference centers, so they tend to fill up fast. Book a room early to ensure you get the lodging of your choice. There are also hotel chains near the airport and in residential areas; public transport and taxi service link these to the city's downtown.
