The Grand Regatta (State Games of Michigan)

  • Hosted By Grand Rapids Rowing Association

Parking will be at the GRRA boathouse at 291 North Park NW. There are open fields to the south of the boathouse on either side of the entrance drive. Vehicles are not allowed to park in the shell laydown area close to the boathouse. Shells can be placed on the fields north of the vehicle parking areas. Note that due to the consistent rain, parking is limited at the boathouse. Additional parking is located at 5/3rd ball park. Gates open at 7am, follow drive to the very south lot. This will be close to the back of the boathouse and White pines trail. Additional spectator viewing is available along the white pines trail.
