The campus has been a beautiful, peaceful hallmark of Grand Rapids’ West Side neighborhood and nearby neighbor and friend to the city of Walker since the Carmelite Sisters chose the current site in 1951. Our 23 acres include a variety of mature trees, open lawns, sidewalks and benches for strolls or pausing to enjoy a Pure Michigan day, and it is populated by many birds, squirrels, chipmunks, and natural plants. Ducks at Tree








St. Ann’s is on a primary route of Grand Rapids rapid-transit system, The Rapid, and is close to neighborhood-based and supported shopping, specialty stores, farm markets, a post office, parks and bicycling and walking trails.
