Rosa Parks Circle – Downtown Grand Rapids

Rosa Parks Circle

Rosa Parks CircleDowntown Grand Rapids is a great place to call home and a great place to visit if you live out in the burbs. There are just so many opportunities for fun for the whole family and one of them is Rosa Parks Circle which is located at the corner of Pearl and Monroe. Originally called the Monroe Mall Amphitheater, it was renamed after longtime Michigan resident, Rosa Parks.

During the warmer months of the year, Rosa Parks Circle serves as a venue for outdoor concerts and shows. During the winter months, it is frozen over and converted into an outdoor ice skating rink.

This week, starting today, Rosa Parks Circle has been converted into a giant Ice Chess game board and large blocks of ice will be carved into playing pieces.  During the match, as a piece is taken, it will be smashed. All we need now is for “he who shall not be named to show up”!

This event is being filmed by the Food Network for their new TV show, Ice Brigade. Filming begins at 10am, the chess match shall start at noon!

You will find a schedule of events at Rosa Parks Circle here.
