Reviewed December 21, 2012

Seriously--can you spend a better time watching fish jump? Really enjoyed a beautiful day on the river at a special spot that combines technology and nature.

“Omg fish jumping in my face”
Reviewed November 9, 2012

When the season is right, fish will jump out of the water up this crazy ladder. All gr needs is a grizzled bear to eat these crazy fish

“The fish are jumping”
Reviewed November 8, 2012

I have spent many lunches over the past few months walking on the beautiful paths in downtown Grand Rapids. Walking by the fish ladder is always a fun experience, because you're never quite sure how many fish will be trying to jump up the ladder on any given day. It entertains me, and I know that any kids in the area are excited too. Plus there are always a lot of fisherman in the area trying theri luck, so you're bound to see a fish up close one way or another.

“Im sure it was innovated in it day.”
Reviewed November 3, 2012

This very dated design is located in rather sketchy area of the city. I would not recommend going there in the evening/dark
The best time to see the fish spawning is late Autumn, It is not all that exciting compared to so many other cool and unique places in Grand Rapids

“Who would have thought”
Reviewed November 1, 2012

that fish would find their way to a 'ladder' in order to go upstream. This provides such good picture possibilities for the avid and not-so photographer.
