The city of Grand Rapids partnered with the Junior League of Grand Rapids and Sinclair Recreation to build a new playground over the weekend.

The partners built a new community playground on Saturday, April 30, at Mulick Park, 1632 Sylvan Ave. SE in Grand Rapids.

The entire playground was built in nine hours by members of the Junior League, Grand Rapids parks and recreation employees, and community volunteers.

The project was part of the Junior League’s Wellness Adventure Yard initiative, which aims to increase access and opportunities to outdoor activity for youth.

Members of the community living near the park shared their ideas on the design of the new playground in summer 2021.

The project was funded by a $25,000 grant from the Junior League of Grand Rapids, a $26,000 GameTime grant, and $80,000 from the Parks Millage passed by Grand Rapids voters in 2019.
