Richmond Park was one of Grand Rapids original parks known as Richmond Hill by the donation of Rebecca L. Richmond. The park used to be used as a recreational area for skiing with a jump and toboggan chute.

The park was created to be a community gathering place for Grand Rapids residents with a unique pool and bath house built in 1932 by George Welsh who was the City Manager at the time.

In recent years, residents of the west side organized WinterWest, which brought skating back to the park.
