Join us for summer fun before school starts up!

July 24th & 31st + August 7th & 14th, head over to Joe Taylor Park and join the community for summer reading, treats, and basketball! All youth 15 years and under will receive a free book courtesy of Read GR, and everyone is welcome to grab an ice cream sandwich courtesy of Country Fresh (while treats last)!

While you’re there, check out the opportunity to play in the Battle of the Gains Basketball Tournament. July 24th will be open courts for all, you can sign-up a team to play on the remaining dates at the information table in the park.

Special thanks to our partners, Baxter Neighborhood Association & Grand Rapids Public Schools
