Millennium Park Fun

Yesterday, my sister and I took our kids to Millennium Park in Grand Rapids.  For those of you that might not live here, there is a man-made lake, a beach area, a splash-pad and picnic areas.  There is no cost to get in, but there is a minimal cost to use the beach and splash-pad.  Adults cost $4 and kids over age 3 are $2.  Total cost for me and my 3 boys was only $10.  The weather was perfect.  Overcast, but warm enough to be in the water.  The lake water was perfect (at least for me, i do not swim unless the water is like my bathtub) and we started there.  The water is so clear and the bottom is pure sand.  The kids loved it!  Then we moved over to the splash-pad.  I stayed on the sidelines, as that water was too cold for me.  But my oldest loved it and my sister’s little girl, who is only 2, had a blast.  I would highly recommend spending a day here if you’ve never been.  It is much busier on weekends and when it is 90 degrees, so keep that in mind.  Have fun!
