The Gary New Duluth Community Center & Recreation Area

The Gary New Duluth community, the private sector and the City of Duluth are working together to redevelop the GND REC into a fully functioning Community Center and Recreation Area. The project area is located adjacent to Stowe Elementary School and in the middle of the St. Louis River Corridor.

The Gary New Duluth neighborhoods are located in the far west portion of Duluth. More than 3000 people live in the community. The community is served by Stowe Elementary School which provides elementary school education for approximately 300 students from the Fairmont area (Spirit Valley) all the way west to Fond du Lac.
