Ada Township is home to some of the most luxurious homes in Grand Rapids. The Grand River converges with the Thornapple River which runs directly through Ada and gives access to miles of waterfront property. Ada is home to some of the most influential people in West Michigan. The philanthropic efforts of the Van Andel and Meijer families is legendary and their proximity to Ada Township has helped to ensure that Ada will be a beautiful, fun, and convenient place to live for decades to come!
There are plans in the works to redevelop an enormous portion of downtown Ada to attract young families, visitors and small business. New retail and restaurants will increase the walkability of the neighborhood will certainly drive up property values.
Ada is the kind of place that you settle down. With a tight knit community and a passion for excellence, residents rarely have a reason to move!
The 88 mile Thornapple River begins in Eaton County which is just southwest of Lansing. It gathers briefly in the Thornapple Lake before meandering through Hastings, Middleville, and Caledonia. As it approaches Ada, the Thornapple widens into a truly magnificent river with enough width and length that homeowners on the river can participate in all of the activities that waterfront property can offer. This all-sports river has everything that you would find in Michigan's premium lakes.
The Thornapple continues it's unusual northward journey until it joins the Grand River just on the north side of Ada. The Grand then continues on through downtown Grand Rapids, and East to the Big Lake. (Third Coast)
The section of river that runs into Ada, is one of the most beautiful places in all of West Michigan. Riverfront property on the Thornapple represents community, family, beauty and luxury all at once. These properties are always in demand. If you happen to own one, you are sitting on some of the best land in West Michigan. If you happen to want one, you should get on a list! These properties don't come for sale frequently, and when they do, they don't stay on the market long. If you are interested, you should find someone who knows the area and will keep on the look out of you! Hint: We are very good at this.
