Love Your Park

by Friends of Grand Rapids Parks

We hope you will consider making a contribution to help Grand Rapids’ parks, trees and people can thrive this year. We’ve outlined some specific funding opportunities so you can find the best fit.

This past year especially, parks provided safe places for our community to gather, play, and be refreshed. The Love Your Park event offers us a chance to celebrate these spaces, and discuss how we can grow them even stronger in 2021.

Some of Friends’ goals for this year are:

  • Expanding our summer Green Team to employ more youth ages 18-24 to care for trees alongside Friends’ foresters
  • Bringing back our free family Movies in the Park series to five parks this summer
  • Matching more of our city’s 76 parks with volunteers who will beautify and activate these spaces throughout the year

Each of these efforts will be brought to life thanks to the funding of sponsors, foundations, and amazing supporters like you.
