Park Managed by City of Grand Rapids
Joe Taylor Park and Playground
Kids will love the splash pad with its bucket dumpers, and parents will love the toddler-focused playground and benches surrounding the park.
This park is perfect for a couple of hours of fun on a hot summer day!
You'll find baby swings, a small structure with slides and a fun springy merry-go-round.
If younger kids aren't brave enough for dump buckets, they can test out the sprayers from the ground.
Several benches are alongside the full-sun splash pad for parents to supervise their kids. A covered pavilion is nearby for a lunch or an escape from the sun.
The use of LED parking lot lighting, a system of irrigation that reuses the splash pad water for the trees and lawn, and a green-focused permeable parking lot are all efforts to be an earth-friendly park.
