I stumbled upon Friends of Grand Rapids Parks when they were spreading wood chips at a local dog park I go to. What a great help this is, keeping the mud down and the appearance up! I am so grateful.

The Friends of GR Parks has works incredibly hard to improve and expand green spaces and parks throughout our city. Their organization has given our citizen a single source for volunteering and helping to keep up our public spaces. I just wish they would have started earlier. :)
