Classified as a Community and Special Use Park; works to meet community recreation needs as well as preserve natural landscapes. Provin Trails Park is located outside of the Grand Rapids city limit, and is jointly operated with Kent County. The trails offer a challenging walk and an advanced trail for cross country skiers. Park activities and facilities include: cross country skiing, hiking/walking, and restrooms. Beautiful wooded trails provide a scenic walk or run during the Fall, Winter, or Spring and great cross-country skiing in the Winter months. The park land was bequeathed to GR in 1936 by Estelle Provin. Kent County and GR approved a 40 year lease in 1981. Kent County has built and managed the park since that time.
