As a local real estate agent in Grandville, being a community resource is one of our more rewarding attributes. Moving to a new community comes with a lot of questions and wondering where the local parks and playgrounds are at the top of the list. Will they be good for kids and teens, alike? Will they be large enough to spend more than just 30 minutes? What can you expect to see when you get there? The City of Grandville is often referred to as the City of “churches and parks” and rightfully so.
