Creston-Cheshire

Once the breadbasket of Grand Rapids, the Creston-Cheshire district today is the city's playground. With bike trails extending across the state, the Grand River, and eight parks, two of them among the city's largest, Creston-Cheshire offers plenty of opportunity to enjoy the great outdoors in an urban setting.

Creston residents enjoy a neighborhood picnic and puppet show.

It also showcases strong and stable neighborhoods, highly successful inner-city school programs, a thriving business district, and an energetic nightlife. Where else in Grand Rapids can you find authentic Irish music and poetry slams on the same street on the same night?

Settled by determined Dutch, Irish, German, and Polish immigrants, Creston-Cheshire has undergone a great deal of change since its development 150 years ago. But the district today remains true to its founding values: diversity, neighborliness, and hard work.
