The City of Wyoming has a long and profound history. Today the city has grown from the shadow of metropolitan Grand Rapids to become Michigan's 16th largest community – with west Michigan's largest industrial tax base. The city has grown to 70,000 strong with a diverse cultural base, seven school districts, a balance of older and modern homes, retail variety and an abundance of parkland.
The City of Wyoming Historical Commission oversees the preservation of objects and data of importance to the city. The commission does this by running the local history archives at the Wyoming Public Library, with regular public programs and lectures, ongoing research and documentation and their partnership with schools and educators. Wyoming is home to the new Kent District Library, seven school districts, more than 600 acres of parkland that includes 20 parks, 500 acres of green space, nature preserves and trails. Access to the arts and cultural events in the city and surrounding communities strengthens Wyoming's diverse appeal.
Wyoming is home to seven primary and secondary school districts and is within easy access to eight colleges and universities. You can visit most of their school districts online and check out many collegiate career track options. Wyoming is within a few miles of the renowned Van Andel Museum and just a 30-minute drive to Lake Michigan.
