GR City Points

Park Makeover

Contribute your points to your favorite Grand Rapids park for a chance to earn a $50,000 Park Makeover!

The City of Grand Rapids is sponsoring the first ever mygrcitypoints campaign as part of the Parks Alive program with Friends of Grand Rapids Parks.

Contribute a portion or all of your points to your favorite Grand Rapids park between now and March 31.  The park that receives the most points will earn a Park Makeover valued up to $50,000.  Two runners-up will earn Park Spruce-ups valued up to $10,000. 

To participate, just click the Contribute Points button, type in how many points you would like to contribute, select the park you would like to contribute to from the drop-down list, and click support. Keep checking this page to see how your park is doing.  The parks that earn the rewards will be announced this Spring.

Contributed points are non-refundable.  Donation of your points to your favorite park does not guarantee a reward.  However, we encourage you to rally your friends and neighbors to contribute points to show support and increase the chances of your favorite park earning a Park Makeover.
