City of Grant

Founded in 1893 the small (889 residents) City of Grant has established itself as the southern gateway to Newaygo County's River Country.  Grant's Muskegon River access,  through nearby Bridgeton, reflects the area's enhancement of recreational opportunities for visitors and community members alike.  These include beautiful City of Grant. 

Dubbed a “Farm to Table” district, Grant revels in its superb multigenerational farms, the beauty in its myriad fruit orchards and farm-to-table restaurants, including Old Iron Bar & Grill, The Depot Restaurant and Ridge Cider, the first hard cider mill in Newaygo County.

Recent activities and city-driven enhancements include:

Newly constructed Blance Lake Park Amphitheater resides along the lovely Blanche Lake located inside the City limits.  The Park includes a deck for fishing and the launch of canoes and kayaks, baseball diamond, picnic area with covered seating, horseshoe pits and volleyball court.
