The West Grand neighborhood, in my opinion, has all you need for life within reach, especially with the construction of the new Meijer store happening. It has some great bars/breweries, corner groceries, ice cream, Richmond Park, churches, and many specialty and service stores for cars, computers, and more. The businesses and families moving into the area are improving life for everyone around.

Among other things, we are home to two of the most wealthy families in the world (Van Andel & DeVos), along with many other people who've built sucessful businesses and has helped both our economy and community through their generous contributions.
