Need A Nap? Briggs Park To Get A “Hammock Grove” This Summer
Beginning this summer, the park will offer an area perfect for you to hang your hammock up, and go for a snooze.
The spacious park, located off Knapp Street on the city's Northeast side (the BEST side), will be getting a couple of great additions this summer.
In addition to the 'Hammock Grove', the park will also host a Butterfly Garden according to a post on the Grand Rapids Parks and Recreation Facebook page.
According to the post:
The garden will feature tall wooden structures painted in bright colors that will function as public art, hammock posts, and places for caterpillars to build their chrysalides. A group of volunteers will plant native pollinator species in the center of the space.
The interactive, functional installation, named "Connections", will naturally flow within its environment to create a unique gathering space for the community.
All of costs for the additions were approved thanks to a Parks millage increase voted in in 2013. More improvements are coming quickly to other city parks, you can find more about those projects on the City Parks page.
