Fred Meijer Millennium Park Trails

Load up your bikes or running shoes (and don't forget your picnic basket and swimming suits) and head to this recreation destination just west of Grand Rapids. Double the size of New York City's Central Park, Millennium Park encompasses 1,500 acres of wetlands, lakes and rolling terrain between Johnson Park and John Ball Park on the west side of the Grand River.

Known for its swimming beach, splash park, fishing docks and huge playground, the park also includes an extensive network of nearly 20 miles of paved bicycle paths and improved nature trails. This network of trails guides you through the park's natural features and along several lakes, ponds and wetlands teaming with wildlife, waterfowl and migratory birds. A series of new trails and a boardwalk, plus a new parking area, pavilion and ampitheater, were added to the park in 2016 on the east side of Maynard Avenue.

Fred Meijer Standale Trail

The 6.5-mile Fred Meijer Standale Trail is a series of nicely landscaped paved paths and elevated boardwalks that connect the Walker Sports Complex with the trails in Millennium Park. On October 17, 2016, a ribbon-cutting ceremony officially opened a new tunnel that now offers safe passage under Lake Michigan Drive in Standale. The Fred Meijer Standale Trail is viewed as an important "keystone" connector for the Grand Rapids Metro Area Trails Network that will eventually link the Musketawa Trail in northern Kent County to an extensive network of trails in southern Kent County.

Along its north/south route, the trail travels through a series of neighborhoods, providing Walker and Standale residents with easy access to this great recreational resource. The terrain is mostly flat with some hilly sections. From a leisurely stroll to a vigorous workout, the Fred Meijer Standale Trail is a great way to enjoy the natural beauty of this West Michigan community.
