Sixth Street Bridge Park, located in the heart of downtown Grand Rapids, will be the location for Saturday packet pickup as well as the start and finish of the 2017 Zombie Dash. The address for Sixth Street Bridge Park is as follows:
Sixth Street Bridge Park, 647 Monroe Ave NW, Grand Rapids, MI 49503
Sixth Street Bridge Park is sandwiched in between the Grand River and an industrial zone. There are many free parking opportunities on the surrounding roads in this area as most businesses in the industrial zone are closed on Saturday evening. The park itself has a good number of spots, which will fill up first. There is a small parking lot just north of the park, south of 6th Street, that can be parked in. Parking should be available on Monroe, Bond, Ottawa, Ionia and side streets. Sixth Street Bridge will be closed to all traffic beginning at about 6:15 PM. Front Ave between 4th St. and about 10th St. will be closed at this time as well. If you plan to arrive 6:15 PM or later and have to cross the Grand River, take Leonard or Michigan over the river.
The City of GR downtown parking website should assist you in your parking endeavour.
NOTE: Both zombies and runners gather at 6th ST Bridge Park for same-day check in.
