Millennium Park is a unique, ambitious project to reclaim 1,500 acres of heavily-used land for public recreation. The park encompasses rolling terrain and extensive wetlands and lakes southwest of Grand Rapids, between Johnson Park and John Ball Park. Its land is rich in natural resources, featuring woods,wildlife, fish and waterfowl. Facilities within the park now include a sixacre
beach and splashpad, nearly 20 miles of trails, and other diverse opportunities for recreati on. Touching Grand Rapids, Walker, Grandville and Wyoming, Millennium Park is one of our nationís largest urban parks.

The boating center opened in spring 2011 and offers kayaks,paddle boats, row boats and canoes for rent. In additi on to the south section of Lake Leota near the beach, boaters also will be able to explore the north section of the lake, by paddling under a trail bridge. An elevated boardwalk will connect the new boating center to the beach area, near the Splashpad.
