Heritage Hill* residents present ideas

GRAND RAPIDS (WZZM)-  wzzmclip.tiff

For years, the corner of Pleasant and Madison in Grand Rapids’ historic Heritage Hill district has been an empty lot.

Now the Heritage Hill Neighborhood Association is partnering with the city to turn the empty space into a neighborhood park.

On Saturday community members were invited to pitch their ideas for the park including rules, names and designs.

The Heritage Hill neighborhood association hopes to start the project as soon as grant money and other funding is approved.

* Friends of GR Parks and South Hill Neighborhood were also partners in the Design Charrette process.
