Posted on

A group of Grand Valley students are working with the Frederik Meijer Honors College and Friends of Grand Rapids Parks to host an event, “Bring The Green GR,” which will provide a day of activities to encourage sustainability and a healthy, active lifestyle. 

The event will take place Saturday, April 12, from noon until 6 p.m. at Heartside Park, 301 Ionia Ave. SW. 

A park clean-up will begin the day, followed by fitness activities like Zumba and yoga, and games like capture the flag and ultimate frisbee. Participants are encouraged to help with the park clean up, and to use sustainable methods of transportation to reach the event, including bicycling or riding the bus.
