GRAND RAPIDS, Mich. — If you’re looking for ways to give back to your community and have some summer fun, Friends of Grand Rapids Parks are kicking off their BBQ & Beautify  Series starting Wednesday, June 8th in Garfield Park.

The first of the event series  runs from 5:00-8:00pm and gives Grand Rapids community members an opportunity to enjoy a fun summer evening.

FGRP staff will be in attendance, with park and tree maintenance tools in hand, to lead volunteers through a park improvement project, with a free community BBQ to follow.

If the volunteer project and BBQ are not enough to entice you, FGRP will also be bringing yard games and other park activities, in addition to park-themed giveaways.

For a full listing of parks and more information on the series, you can visit or call 616-288-7209.
