Fitzgerald Park and Lincoln Brick Park are the highlights of Grand Ledge. Beautiful views with long trails. There is plenty of private businesses along with big corporate grocery stores nearby. There are a few gas stations so you won't have to worry about gas. Grand Ledge has their own airport, though very small.
Grand Ledge is a wonderful place to live and raise a family. Everything you need is within five minutes of where you live. The park and walking trail are beautiful in the summer and fall. Plenty of places to live in and out of town and housing is affordable. The restaurants are a family favorite, from Mexican to Italian meals.
