SOUTHWEST – Byron Center, Wyoming, Dorr, and Wayland with Kids

Byron Center, Wyoming, Dorr, and Wayland with Kids

I love living in BC! Very family friendly community, amazing public schools and teachers, everybody knows somebody and we all have each other’s backs! Love my Byron Center family, especially my subdivision, Planters Row, family!!!

Dorr is great because everyone keeps to themselves. πŸ˜‰

We live in Wyoming and love it! We have beautiful parks, well-equipped playgrounds, and a cheery splashpad. We host the yearly Pumpkin Walk Festival where all the kids get to decorate and take a small pumpkin home for Halloween. Don’t forget the free Tuesday night summer concert series at Lamar Park! We have miles of trails to walk and spend time in nature. There are green spaces everywhere. We also have the Wyoming branch of the public library-my favorite branch to take the littles for story time. It’s bright and cheerful and has cool child-focused play areas and craft spaces. There are even built-in reading nooks in the walls with windows for daydreaming about the places you’re visiting in your books. One of the best things? We’re close enough to get to Grand Rapids and all the wonderful things it offers, but we’re able to maintain that smaller town feel.

Byron Center: We have an incredible arts program! In addition to our fantastic H.S. productions, The Van Singel Fine Arts Center hosts tons of great shows, productions and events all year. Amazing schools and genuinely loving teachers/staff, parades, community days with fireworks, chalk art festival and, um….Tanger! ?

When they need to run their wiggles out and you want to stay warm A great spot we enjoy throughout the year, but especially on cold or wet days is the Byron Center Recreation Building. It is an affordable way to let your little run their wiggles out. It is only $1/child if you live in Byron Center or $2/child if you are a non-resident. They also have a season pass option available at $10 for each resident child or $15 for each non-resident child. The Recreation Center blocks out half of the gym for children five and under to come play with their caregivers. They put out mats, balls, hula hoops, a parachute and other miscellaneous toys for the children to play with. My daughter is most happy when the bounce house is up and running for the children to enjoy! This is a great place to go for families looking for indoor entertainment. We always feel welcome at the facility by the friendly staff. We like to play basketball, participate in free play on the mats or just simply run around the gym. My daughter is usually ready for a nap after such a busy morning. The Byron Recreation Center is open for Toddler Time on Tuesdays and Fridays from 9:30-11:30. It is located at 2120 76th St. Byron Center, MI 49315. They can be reached at 616-878-1998. Toddler Time runs from October through April. Visit their website for more information http://byronrec.org/.
