Discovering Cherry Run: A Quaint Neighborhood in Grand Rapids

Nestled in the heart of Grand Rapids, Michigan, lies the charming Cherry Run neighborhood, home to around 500 residents. This quaint community, named after Cherry Run Drive that meanders through its core, emerged as a distinct neighborhood in 2004, branching out from the West Side Connection neighborhood. The establishment of the Cherry Run Neighborhood Association marked a significant step towards preserving and protecting the unique character of this area. Unlike other neighborhoods defined by street names or historic landmarks, Cherry Run’s boundaries are uniquely delineated by the lots of its residents.

A Nature Lover’s Paradise

Adjacent to Cherry Run, the Blandford Nature Center unfolds a natural oasis in the urban setting. Established in the 1950s, this 264-acre nature preserve offers a slice of wilderness amidst the city buzz. With a working farm, the Blandford School, and over 2.2 miles of trails traversing the former Highlands Golf Course, it’s a haven for nature enthusiasts. Residents on the fringes of Acadia Drive are fortunate to have this pristine land as their backyard view.

Neighboring Amenities

Cherry Run’s compact size lends a cozy ambiance, with homes occupying most of its space. However, the neighborhood’s proximity to highly-rated schools like C.A. Frost Science Academy and West Catholic High School enriches the educational landscape for its young residents. These institutions are not only acclaimed for their academic excellence but also for fostering practical learning and team spirit through various sports programs.

Just a stone’s throw away, Richmond Park extends a 57-acre recreational ground, offering a seasonal swimming pool, cross-country skiing, and unique mountain biking trails for outdoor aficionados.


Cherry Run may be one of the newest and smallest neighborhoods in Grand Rapids, but it’s rich in community spirit, natural beauty, and neighboring amenities. Its close-knit vibe and proximity to nature and recreational facilities make it a cherished locale for its residents.
