Land assembled for Joe Taylor Park park expansion in Grand Rapids

By Jim Harger | The Grand Rapids Press

GRAND RAPIDS -- Officials are in the final stages of assembling the
land they will need to complete an expansion of Joe Taylor Park in the
Baxter Neighborhood on the Southeast Side.

The city plans to bury a stormwater detention structure beneath the park as part of its sewer projects on the East Side.

The city also will block off part of Baxter Street SE to connect the
current park with the expanded area, which will include restrooms, a
water playground and community garden plots.
