The finishing touches on an amazing project

Phases Four and Five will complete the revitalization of the GND REC.

Key Facilities:
  • Improving traffic safety

101st Avenue West goes through the center of the GND REC. In order to make this facility as amazing as possible, the street needs to be repaved and new curbs installed. Engineering drawings have been prepared and provided to the City of Duluth. Reconstructing the street will put the finishing touches on the GND REC and will make it something we can all truly be proud of. 

A wooded area adjacent to the dog park, which is currently tax forfeited land, has the potential to be re-purposed into a combination a variety of recreational amenities including a wilderness walking trail area.



We value and take pride in our community and each of its members, education, physical activity and our environment, those who promote positive actions and give back to our community, and appreciate the opportunity to have fun as we promote service in our community and strong personal relationships between its members.

Because of the incredible generosity of the Duluth community and beyond, we have raised the following in cash and in kind contributions of labor, services and materials.  Our citizens, businesses, trade unions, foundations and the City of Duluth have been truly amazing in their support.

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!
