Free

Join us on January 4, 2020 as WinterWest returns to Richmond Park! This is a free event that encourages people to get out and enjoy winter in our Grand Rapids parks.

The park will be filled with winter activities for your family to try from 10:00 – 2:00 p.m.. Go on a snowshoe hike, try out a fat tire bike, or pop into the pavilion for kid-friendly crafts and hot chocolate to warm up!

And of course, don’t forget the Crazy Cardboard Sled Races! Register your homemade sled in either the kid or adult category, and be ready to rock at 10:30. We’ll be awarding prizes for both adults and kids for Fastest Sled, Most Creative Sled, and Farthest Distance Covered.

We invite sled race participants to pre-register here for faster check-in!

 

WinterWest is organized by Friends of Grand Rapids Parks in collaboration with the Grand Rapids’ Parks and Recreation Department, and West Grand Neighborhood Organization.
