GRAND RAPIDS, Mich. -- After two years of hearing from residents, the City of Grand Rapids is getting ready to unveil its plan to improve the trail along the Grand River.
The "River for All" project includes six different opportunity sites and design guidelines the the city says will help shape the future of the river corridor.
The goal here is to create a user-friendly, welcoming and accessible 7.5-mile river trail that someday will flank both sides of the Grand River between Riverside Park to the north and Millennium Park to the south.
There are also plans to create off-street green areas and increasing natural light along the river near Coldbrook Street in addition to extending the river walk from Riverside to Millennium Park.
The River for All project is also part of the Grand Rapids Whitewater River Restoration project, plans for which will also be presented during the meeting, including costs and timeline.
The meeting is planned for Thursday, November 1, at DeVos Place and is free and open to the public. You can reserve a ticket here.
