The Parks and Recreation Board meet for the purpose of determining community recreation needs and a means of meeting such needs through the government of the Village.

The Village Hall manages the Central Park and Mill Point Park reservation calendars. Please contact Village Hall at 616-842-1393 to reserve facilities at Central Park and Mill Point Park.

Trees for Village Residents

It’s the time of year to adopt a Village tree! We would love for our Village residents to take part in this amazing program. Please email Darcie Benter at or call Village Hall at 616-842-1393 and ask for Darcie if you would like to participate!

If you are interested, please understand that the Village subscribes to the Right Tree, Right Place program as outlined by the National Arbor Day Foundation. This means that not every species or variety of tree is right for every location. Please know that the tree you may request from the Village may not be the right location. The Village does reserve the right to plant a different variety or species of tree per the Tree City USA Guidelines.
