We are a citizen driven nonprofit working to protect, enhance and expand our community parks.
The Friends of Grand Rapids Parks is an independent, citizen led, nonprofit enterprise founded in 2008, working closely with but separate from the City, with the mission to identify specific park projects, mobilize people, and generate resources to protect, enhance, and expand the City's parks and public spaces. In a nutshell, we make park improvement projects happen by b ringing together neighbors, park users, the City, funders, volunteers and contractors.
We believe that vibrant parks and public spaces are essential to support the community’s economic competitiveness, environmental health and cultural well-being. We understand that a healthy park system is a long-term commitment.
