Grand Rapids Sister Cities International through an agreement with the City of Grand Rapids, administers Grand Rapids’ sister cities programs and interfaces with state and nation wide efforts to bring the culture of other nations home to the citizens of our area. Because of hard work and dedication of our members and volunteers and the Grand Rapids community, we now have five sister cities: Omihachiman, Japan; Bielsko-Biala, Poland; Perugia, Italy; the Ga District, Ghana; and Zapopan, Mexico.
“Now on display at the Fred Meijer Gardens and Sculpture Park, come and view our five Sister Cities famous landmarks on display through January 3rd. All models are made of natural woodland items like wood, moss, stones, nuts, and leaves. These models are new this year to the Gardens so come and see them through the holiday season.”
