Who We Are

We’re Doing Great THings

The GND REC and Stowe Elementary School are the family center of the community. You, your family and friends are welcome to come out to the GND REC to socialize, make friendships, enjoy nature, play sports and much more.

Building our community.

the GND REC is a place for all.

Youth through seniors, we have amenities and activities to enjoy. Our youth programming is led by the YMCA and focuses on being outside to learn about nature, play sports and to have fun. The K9 Haas dog park has a large area for all size dogs and a smaller, fenced area, for smaller dogs that may not want to be with bigger dogs. 

Our community garden has 14 raised beds to grow your own vegetables. The multi-activity sport court is a place to play basketball, pickle ball, hop scotch or 4 square.  Come out and enjoy a concert or picnic under our pavilion.

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.

We can’t get this project completed without your help!
