Grand Ravines is an 202-acre Ottawa County Park with a half-mile of frontage on the Grand River and can be accessed from the north and south. A county-wide natural features inventory completed in 1988 identified the extensive system of deep ravines that extends along the GVSU riverfront and through what is now park property as one of the most significant natural features in Ottawa County. The deep ravines feature unique plant communities, including a variety of ferns and trees uncommon to the area, such as Kentucky coffee-trees, paw paws and towering tulip trees.
