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 20.39 square miles, Grand Rapids is home to 7,646 residents. For several decades, the Town has led the County in single-family home construction. The average Grand Rapids resident, age 38 with spouse and child, owns a single-family home with a median household income of $62,515. 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 twice 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 several 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.
