Stay Home, Stay Active
The East Grand Rapids Parks and Recreation Department is working on gathering a few different website suggestions to help you EXPLORE virtual fitness, sport, or educational options, CREATE new personal challenges and continue to PARTICIPATE while staying at home. While we have done our due diligence checking each link and website, please make sure you verify each site and its social image on your own as well. We will continue to Keep Our Community Connected while being at a safe social distance.
