We are relaunching our membership program!

This year we are celebrating 10 years of Friends of Grand Rapids Parks empowering people to cultivate vibrant parks, green spaces, and trees in our community. In celebration of our 10 year anniversary, we are relaunching our Friends of Grand Rapids Parks membership program! This is an opportunity to be a sustainability steward in our community.

We are committed to making Grand Rapids a more green, vibrant and thriving city. Because of friends like you, we have planted over 700 trees, engaged with almost 1000 volunteers and GRPS students, and activated park and green spaces throughout Grand Rapids.

This year we worked with our friend at Woosah Outfitters to create an exclusive Friends of Grand Rapids Park art piece to celebrate our anniversary. We have that art into an exclusive stickers and tshirts for our members and volunteers! They are available for members and our events our through our membership program.

Being a member of Friends of Grand Rapids Parks means you are making it possible for us to update and beautify park spaces, plant and maintain trees, teach community classes and workshops, and help teach students about why caring the our earth matters.

With our different membership and benefit levels (see descriptions below) you can choose the right fit for you to show your support.

Memberships last for a year and run from June to May.

Because we were so excited about our 10 year anniversary and our new membership program we worked with Woosah Outfitters to create an exclusive Friends of Grand Rapids Park woodcut that we turned into stickers and tshirts for our members and volunteers! They are available at our events our through our membership program.

Becoming a member is easy! Below you will find a description of each membership level and their unique benefits.
