Ah-Nab-Awen Park is a long, narrow green space that runs along the west side of the Grand River. This park is adjacent to the Gerald R. Ford Museum and visible from the DeVos Convention Center (across the river). It is accessible by a pedestrian bridge that runs across the river as well as on-site parking. Another area of the park (not available for use for Artprize) houses three large, grassy mounds which were built in 1976 to symbolize Hopewell Indian burial mounds, which are native to the area. The park offers ample green space and a fantastic view of the Grand Rapids skyline.
