The dog park opened on Memorial Day, 2011, the park has two sections consisting of one fenced in area for small dogs and the other for large dogs. The park is located on N. Cass St, directly behind the waste water treatment plant. The dog park is maintained solely by the Dog Park Companions.

U.S. Representative Paul Henry served this area well until his untimely death in 1993. He had a deep commitment to the environment and those who live in this area. It is in recognition of his contributions to this area that the Thornapple Trail Association dedicated the trail in his memory. The trail association hopes all those who ride or walk along the trail will remember Paul Henry and commit themselves to public service and preserving the environment for the future.

Thornapple Valley Church (TVC) is a church designed to serve both Christians and those who might consider themselves spiritual seekers. It’s a safe place for people who are looking for answers to their spiritual questions, and simply want to check out Christianity without anyone pressuring them.
