About The Ada Community
Some of our towns have a Township, a City, and a Village. It would be proper to say "I live in Ada" or "I am going to the village", or "I live in Ada township". Starting with a fur trading post of the late 18th century, the township in the late 20th century developed residential and retail areas around Grand Rapids. It's the home of the famous covered bridge, a destination for photos, school, weddings, or family pictures. Probably the most photographed bridge in Kent county. In addition to its two rivers (the Grand and the Thornapple), numerous streams, and meadows, Ada Township is known for its lush, rolling, woodland terrain.
You can find people boating and fishing almost all year long! Numerous trails for biking, running, or dog walking. Home prices begin in the 280,000 range to a very high-end price point. The schools can be Forest Hills or Lowell. The village has been renovated, including many retail shops, restaurants, ice cream shops, and offices, and a seasonal farmers' market—a strolling community.
