Focusing on community health
Phase Two will improve the health and wellness of the community in a variety of ways.
- Dog Park
- Community Garden
- Sport Court
First, Phase Two features a Dog Park. The Gary-New Duluth community has always been pet friendly, so we didn’t want to leave important members of our family out of the GND REC. The K9 Haas Dog Park has its own parking area and a fenced interior for our four-legged friends to run free. Inside the fenced interior there are several benches as well as water service for your dog to get a drink during those hot summer days. Playing with your dog is not only good exercise for your dog, but good exercise for you too! Additionally, both K9 and owner will get the added benefit of socializing with others in the community.
The CN Community Gardens at the GND REC feature 14 raised beds for community members to grow fresh organic produce. The garden is fenced perimeter to ensure critters are kept out. The community is classified as a food desert so the gardens help our citizens grow their own vegetables.
Lastly, Phase Two includes 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!
