GRAND RAPIDS, Mich. – The Studio Park project in downtown Grand Rapids is continuing and another parking lot will be closing next week.

The city says that the Area 5 parking lot on Oakes Street SW will close Monday, April 9.  The Area 4 lot next to it closed about a month ago.

The city says there are still 9,000 parking spots in the south Arena District and options are available on the City of Grand Rapids website here and on the myStop Mobile, GR Park and Parkmobile apps.

Oakes Street will soon be closed for sanitary sewer, water main, street lighting, sidewalk and landscaping work, between Grandville and Ionia.

    There may be 9,000 parking spots, but you’re going to have to pay through the nose or walk half-a-mile or more to get to your destination.

    I used to go to the downtown area quite often. Today, I’ll likely do it once. The trendy ‘wannabe city’ image of Grand Rapids that is the ultimate dream for some is, at the same time, a nightmare for many residents. A while ago, I suggested that the city’s parking guru and every other city employee that parks in the city/county ramp be forced to park across the river and take a shuttle bus or walk to their office. Maybe they’ll think that a little public opinion should have been taken into consideration. But, I think that the though never crossed the mind of the of the Bliss, Sundstrom, and Narramore group
