    retirees with its’ impressive number of golf courses with moderately priced

    The attraction that likely draws the most interest in the
    township is the Kent Rail Trail for bikers and walkers which run for fifteen
    miles from John Ball Zoo in Grand Rapids to the township.  This is a trail very well maintained running
    thru rural and urban communities. 

    While the large percentage of commercial use of the area
    keeps residential tax rate at one of the lowest in the Grand Rapids area it
    also provides and helps maintain the excellent schools the District is
    rightfully proud of.
