One of our nation’s largest urban parks, Millennium Park expands across Grand Rapids, Walker, Grandville and Wyoming. Stretching across 1,400 acres, this vast park is rich in natural resources, and has a vibrant atmosphere that welcomes people from all over the county year-round.
Millennium Park truly has something for everyone. Activities available include:
· Picnics and Group Events
· Nature Observation
· Cross Country Skiing
The trails within Millennium Park stretch for 18 miles, but one of the most beloved portions of trail is the “Hansen Nature Trail”. Funding for the boardwalk came from a donation by the Hansen family in memory of Sandy Hansen, a park supporter who passed away in January 2014.
On May 20, from 10am to 3pm, families are invited to join us at “Discover Millennium Park,” a family-friendly event that is free and showcases the Hansen Nature Trail as well as the wildlife that call the park home. With the help of trail-side experts, families will discover the natural history of the park and learn about:
- Birds, Mammals, Reptiles
- Ponds and why they were created
- History of the people of the area
- And more!
Whether you attend Discover ‘Millennium Park” or visit the park on your own, you’re sure to discover something magical!
