Martin Luther King, Jr. Park is a 16.94 acre City of Grand Rapids Park ocated at 900 Fuller Ave SE in the South East End of Grand Rapids. The South East End Neighborhood Association is located here.

The Parks Commission purchased the land for Franklin Park in 1911.  A swimming pool and lodge were added in 1919, and tennis courts were removed in 1956 to make way for a playground.  Franklin Park was renamed as a memorial to Reverand Dr. Martin Luther King Jr. in June, 1969.
