Outdoors
Between home and GVSU main campus south entrance. There is a large well-kept dog park that is a local favorite. Also, numerous hiking trails, a cool suspension bridge over the ravines, views/trails along the Grand River, possible Bald Eagle sightings with a nest near trails along the river. North and South Grand Ravines park connect through trails. South entrance near the red barn near 36th & Fillmore and the North entrance is off the road near the main South entrance to GVSU's main campus. Lovely safe place for a walk/hike/run
