Donate Now And Make Amazing Things Happen

The GND REC is sure to be amazing. But it can't get off the ground by itself. That is why we need amazing people - people like you - to help out whenever they can. Your donation, however big or small. will go a long way towards making this dream a reality.

Phase 1 - Completed

Phase 1 of the new Gary New Duluth Community Center and Recreation Area will start off with remodeling the existing building. Outside of the Community Center there will be an open play area which will double as an ice skating rink during the winter months. There will also be an entry garden and pavilion picknic area for all to use and enjoy the great outdoors. We will also build a Stormwater Feature that will make the entire park more environmentally friendly and aesthetically pleasing. Lastly, phase 1 will build two U10 Soccer fields that can also be used for Lacrosse and other organized sports.

Phase 2 - Construction Underway

Phase Two will improve the health and wellness of the community in a variety of ways. First, Phase Two will feature a Dog Park. The Gary New Duluth community has always been pet friendly, so we didn't want to leave some important members of our family out of The GND REC. Phase Two will also bring Community Gardens to The GND REC. The gardens will feature many raised beds for community members to grow fresh organic produce, but it will also feature an Orchard area! Lastly, Phase Two will include a multi-use Sport Court for all community members to use! The Sport Court will allow everyone from youth to adults play a variety of sports. With all of these features coming to the Gary New Duluth community, it is hard not to get excited! With such a focus on health, the GND community is sure to be one of the healthiest communities around!
