About KalamazooSprings bubbling up in the riverbed are said to have been the inspiration for Kalamazoo's catchy name, a Native American word meaning “place where the water boils.” Whatever its origin, Kalamazoo has enlivened many a poem and song.
Produce from the nearby vegetable-growing region and the diverse yields of many industries provide the basis of Kalamazoo's economy. Western Michigan University and other schools contribute to the city's cultural life. River Oaks Park and Bronson Park are sites for numerous festivals.
