About This Place
Comstock Park is a prosperous suburban community in the northern part of Metropolitan Grand Rapids, Michigan, United States, that comprises parts of three neighboring townships:
Plainfield Township, with a population of 30,195 as of the 2000 census, makes up most of Comstock Park. As it is defined, Comstock Park's population is approximately 10,674. "The Park", as it is often referred to, sits approximately 7 miles (11 km) north of downtown Grand Rapids.
The area is notorious for the flooding it experiences every spring from the Grand River, which cuts through the eastern side of Comstock Park. It's not unusual to witness residents wading through knee-deep water to get to their homes along the river. Comstock Park is perhaps best known as home of the West Michigan Whitecaps, an affiliate of the Detroit Tigers.
