GRAND RAPIDS, Mich. – The City of Grand Rapids is hosting free park events this summer in each of the city’s three wards to enhance community safety and opportunity. The all-ages events are one of three pilot programs developed by the City shortly after a shooting incident at Joe Taylor Park.
The events include:
“We’re pleased to provide these events to our residents in collaboration with several community partners,” said Evette Pittman, the City’s special events supervisor. “These are great opportunities for neighbors to connect, create community and help send a clear message that violence has no place in our city.”
