Comstock Park is a northwestern suburb of Grand Rapids, located in Plainfield Township in Kent County.|
This town is best known as the location for Old Kent Park, home of the West Michigan Whitecaps baseball team. This is a fast-growing area with many new housing developments and small businesses. A great place to appreciate this area is from Mill Creek Park downtown, where you can hike for several blocks along the stream. A duck pond and playscape area provides an attraction for the children.
This town was originally named North Park by its founder, Daniel North, who built a sawmill there in 1838. It was later named Mill Creek in 1848, and became a station on both the Grand Rapids & Indiana and Chicago & Western Railroads. In 1906, the town was renamed Comstock Park, after Charles C. Comstock, who represented the district in Congress from 1885-1886.
