Welcome to the Town of Grand Rapids

The Town of Grand Rapids is proud to announce its ranking as the 4th Safest Town in Wisconsin according to the 2015 ValuePenquin Report and 5th by the 2015 Niche Report. We are also proud to have been named 20th of the Best Towns to Raise a Family  in Wisconsin by the 2015 Niche Report. 

“Our officers are serious about the safety and security of all residents of the Town of Grand Rapids, as well as the visitors who come to enjoy the peace and quiet of our community,” said Grand Rapids Police Chief Mel Pedersen. “With the great community support and cooperation, our department is better able to serve everyone, residents and visitors alike.” 

This is a community honor attributable to the cooperation and leadership of many. The residents of Grand Rapids, town employees, Police Department, Fire Department, town crew, Town Board and all the various town committees played a significant part in achieving these recognitions.

Centrally located for those employed in nearby communities, Grand Rapids is the 13th largest Town in Wisconsin and the 3rd largest community in Wood County. Covering 20.38 square miles, Grand Rapids is home to 7,691 residents. Regulated growth has resulted in development of subdivisions with over half-acre, pine and oak-forested lots, providing a suburban lifestyle. As evidence of the water quality in the Town, half of the municipal wells serving Wisconsin Rapids are in Grand Rapids.

We are proud to offer our residents an excellent quality of life, including primary law enforcement, road maintenance, and a volunteer fire department with a modern and up to date station. The five member Town Board meets monthly. Annual Town meetings give all town residents a vote in major decisions.

Persons from all over Wisconsin come to Grand Rapids to enjoy and participate in events held within the Town. In addition, South Wood County Park on beautiful Lake Wazeecha offers opportunities for hiking, bicycling, fishing, swimming, disc golf, picnics, camping, and boating.
