Sparta Community Recreational Complex  The Township is purchasing property  for a park with trails, restrooms, athletic fields and more.  This is a joint project of Sparta Township, the Village of Sparta, and S.A.R.A. (a group of community members who formed the "Sparta Area Recreation Association").  The millage proposal for the park development was narrowly defeated (2098 1729).  The project will proceed at a slower rate, as funds are available.  The Sparta Area Rec Assoc continues to work on fund-raising through grants and donations.  Contact them at or 616-887-7570 to find out how you can help with this community project.
