Thanks to the help of the Kent County Parks Foundation and our generous supporters, we kicked off the new year by assisting the Kent County Parks Department with the exciting acquisition of 170 acres of rolling fields, woods and wetlands to expand the future Two Rivers Park in southeast Kent County! Two Rivers is one of a few green spaces the the county is holding that eventually will become new parks for future generations to enjoy. This future park is so named because of its location at the confluence of the Coldwater and Thornapple Rivers. Many thanks to all of the partners who helped make this purchase possible, including the Michigan Natural Resources Trust Fund, Caledonia Township, the Wege Foundation, thePeter C and Emajean Cook Foundation, and many individual donors!
