This popular gathering place was designed by Maya Lin, the world-renowned
architect and sculptor who is responsible for the Vietnam War Memorial in Washington, D.C. In the heart of downtown Grand Rapids, this space is anchored by a large amphitheatre that converts to a lighted ice skating rink in the winter. Little-known fact (even to natives): under the ice are 166 fiber-optic lights that represent the midnight sky as it looked above Michigan on January 1, 2000.
During the summer, Wednesday nights at the Circle are dedicated to free Blues
on the Mall concerts that draw everyone from office workers to Harley riders.
Not to mention office workers who are also Harley riders.
