Make Amazing Things Happen

Making vision a reality.

“All great visions are created twice – once in the mind and once in reality. Through the power of partnership, perseverance, persuasion and people our GND REC vision is reality and nearly finished. the GND REC has become a beacon of hope in the moment and a developmental wellspring for generations ahead. What lies before us now as a community is one last great effort to complete its unfinished business—the capstone skate park. Let’s all join forces in 2022 to finish the dream.”

Get Involved


The GND Community Center and Recreation Area is dedicated to providing a place to be used by members of the community for social, cultural, learning and recreational purposes.

The community is in a period of transition with many new people moving to the community. The GND REC provides the catalyst for bringing the community together, benefiting young people and seniors alike while instilling an overall sense of pride throughout the community.
