History Detectives: Parking / Transportation & Lunch

Grand Rapids Local History organizations sponsor History Detectives, a day-long FREE program hosted at the Grand Rapids Public Library.

Parking / Transportation UPDATED

FREE parking in the GR Public Library parking lot (Thanks, GRPL!), just east of the Main Library.  History Detectives devotees know this lot fills fast, so it's smart to have an alternate plan in mind.

Street parking is usually free on Saturdays - be sure to check for enforcement signs.

GRCC’s Main Campus Bostwick Parking Ramp (#8 on the campus map)  is available for public use for a fee of $2.00 per half hour,  up to a $12 daily maximum. Use the STUDENT entrance to the Bostwick Ramp at the NE intersection of Bostwick Street and Fountain Street. Pull a ticket as you enter.  As you exit, pay-in-lane machines accept cash, credit and debit cards for payment. No attendants will be on duty at the lanes.
