Spend a day in the sunshine in one of Grandville's numerous city parks. Enjoy 14 acres of sprawling fields at Wedgwood Park, where you will find a variety of dedicated areas for different activities. Engage in a friendly game of horseshoes at one of 15 lighted horseshoe pits. Have a picnic with your friends and family and cook up burgers and hot dogs on the provided charcoal grills. Little ones will have a blast using up their excess energy on the fabulous playground equipment. Get outside and enjoy the benefits of fresh air and natural Vitamin D.
One of the most looked-forward to events in the city of Grandville is their annual 4th of July celebration. Indulge in the sense of community you will find as you stand on the sidelines of a grand parade, marvel at the talents of local artisans, and take in a stunning fireworks display as you celebrate America's independence. Another event you will not want to miss out on is the Michigan Week Barbecue, where you will be treated to the sweet sounds of live jazz music, participate in fun activities for all ages, and fill up on delicious foods.
A Blast From the Past
It is only natural that one of the state's oldest suburbs would house some rare historical gems to give you a glimpse of the past. Be sure to check out the Grandville Historical Museum on Wilson Ave. for a close look at photographs, furniture, tools, and more from decades long gone. You will even be able to get up-close-and-personal with a real mastodon skeleton unearthed in the area in the 1980s. Visit the No. 10 Schoolhouse on Canal Ave. to view a living museum designed as a replica schoolhouse, complete with desks, rotary phones, and typewriters.
