Campau Park 50 Antoine SE, Grand Rapids 49546
Campau Park is an exciting busy place right now!
On August 28, 2021, Campau Park ( part of SECA-South East Community Association) was host to the inaugural –One Peace Festival, a one day all-ages Hip Hop, health and wellness event. Coming in October, Friends of Grand Rapids Parks will be hosting a Pumpkin Party in Campau Park.
And now, a very exciting addition has come to this park -the 2021 ART PRIZE entry by local artist,Edwin Anderson. Mr. Anderson has transformed an entire basketball court into a mural honoring basketball giant Kobe Bryant and his daughter Gigi Bryant, both of who passed away in a tragic accident in 2020. It’s an amazing piece of art!
In addition to these events, Campau Park has many amenities with recent updates of splash pad, colorful playground equipment, picnic shelter, 2 basketball courts and restrooms. There is a large open grassy space to the west for more recreation.
The park is well cared for and spacious and easily accessible for the surrounding neighborhoods, which include Covenant House Academy (a charter high school) to the north, New Hope Baptist Church to the west and Delaware Manor Senior Housing to the south. Modern new apartments are being built on the east side, facing Division Ave.
Come check out the Art Prize exhibit any time-(it is there too stay)- while you visit another amazing Grand Rapids Park!
