WinterWest 2017 Cancelled

February 12, 2017 @ 3:00 pm - 5:00 pm

Friends of Grand Rapids Parks is sorry to announce that WinterWest and its sled races are cancelled this year. We are very disappointed by the weather but the hill has too much grass and not enough snow for winter fun. We know that this is very disappointing for your sledding teams, and Friends of Grand Rapids Parks could not be more sorry for the warm weather.

Although we won’t have the Kids’ or Adults’ Crazy Cardboard Sled Races this weekend, we are going to continue with the Winter Tree ID Walk which doesn’t require any snow. We will also have the Lodge open from 3-5pm on Sunday with free hot chocolate, so please feel free to stop by and grab a cup of hot chocolate with your family.

Finally, Friends of Grand Rapids Parks is partnering on a free community sledding day at Mulick Park on February 25th and we would love to have all of our carboard sleds come out so we can celebrate your hard work and creativity!

the winter tree id and education walk is still on! 

3:30pm: join FGRP staff Forester Margaret for a family friendly Winter Tree ID & Education Walk 
free hot chocolate in the lodge
3:00-5:00pm: FGRP staff will be on deck to say hello and hand out free hot chocolate, so come on by!  

To RSVP for the Winter Tree ID & Education Walk email margaret@friendsofgrparks.org!

Thank you to our sponsors for helping to make WinterWest possible!
