Situated on Lakeside Drive between the Grand Rapids Yacht Club and Rose's Restaurant, this lakefront park is within easy walking distance of Gaslight Village. It is named for John A. Collins, East Grand Rapids mayor from 1933 to 1956. The park was renovated in 2002 and features the only public access boat launch to Reeds Lake, as well as a lakeshore walk, overlook decks, benches, rain gardens, picnic tables, event space/plaza and public restrooms. Nearly three acres, John Collins Park is home to many events, including concerts and movies.
