Welcome to Sparta, MI! Sparta is a quaint but lovely little town in Northern Kent County. Sparta is situated near everything you need: only 15 minutes north of bustling Grand Rapids, and barely 1/2 an hour from the stunning Lake Michigan coastline. The west half of the township is on the “Ridge”, a prime fruit-growing area, with many acres of beautiful orchards. The Rogue River runs through the East side of the Township. At the center is the Village of Sparta, a thriving small town.

Throughout the area, you will find many locally owned businesses and community organizations that make the Village of Sparta a unique, inviting place to live and work. Besides our friendly community, we have a new state-of-the-art high school and renovated middle and elementary schools that also make the Village of Sparta an appealing place to raise a family. The Village  of Sparta is dedicated to building a strong, faithful community and keeping our community truly “What a Neighborhood Should Be.”

About "the Ridge"

Fruit Ridge or "the Ridge" is a topographical land feature located NW of Grand Rapids, Michigan and considered to be an Agricultural Mecca. The glaciers of long ago left behind gently rolling slopes. The deposits were fertile clay loam soils with excellent moisture holding qualities that provided great soil and terrain for the growing of premium fruits, vegetables and the raising of livestock, including buffalo.

Approximately 8 miles wide by 20 miles long, the Fruit Ridge is regarded as one of the prime fruit-growing regions in the world. Elevations greater than 800 feet and its location (about 25 miles from Lake Michigan), creates a unique climate (ideal growing and moderate winters) for fruit production. The Ridge supplies 60% of the states (Michigan) apples. An estimated 66% of the Ridge lies in Kent County, all within 20 miles of downtown Grand Rapids.

HISTORY OF SPARTA...The Sparta area was first settled in 1844, HISTORICAL MUSEUMS...

Today, of course, along with the agricultural and industrial base, the Sparta community has developed excellent services in banking, merchandising, insurance, construction and publishing, in pharmacies, hardware, groceries and restaurants, in parks and in its own airport. Excellent schools, a variety of churches, and several service organizations and museums are important parts of our community. Offering easy access to a major metropolitan area and the finer aspects of small town life, Sparta truly is a great place to grow.

In 2007, Sparta Township was designated by the White House as a "Preserve America Community"! Sparta Township is one of only 11 other communities in Michigan to have been awarded with this distinction to date. First Lady Laura Bush leads the initiative through the Historical Preservation Caucus of the US House of Representatives. Started in 2004, it encourages and supports community efforts to preserve our nation’s cultural assets and natural heritage. For more information vist http://www.preserveamerica.gov.
