The Grand River has long-defined this corner of the Great Lakes region and the lives of all those who have ever called it home. In order to succeed in the future, the river and its many assets must be shared by every member of the
Grand Rapids community and truly be a ‘River for All’. The guidelines establish general and specific requirements for the design of the 7.5 mile long edge of the Grand River at and above the normal high water level to create a cohesive and accessible river corridor system that serves the entire Grand Rapids community.
