Project Status: Construction Phase
Project Overview: GND Development Alliance (GNDDA) and the City of Duluth have developed a Mini Master Plan to detail the revitalization of the GND recreation area. Future phases will establish different amenities including parking lot improvements, landscaping, a skate park, dog park, sport court and community gardens. Phases may be completed out of sequence - as detailed in the Mini Master Plan - due to community need, grants secured, and ease of completion. To date, the GND Development Alliance has received $91,000 State Coastal Program. Total grant contributions equal $511,510 (both cash and in-kind). These efforts will allow $550,000 of the city match to be released. The GNDDA is researching additional grant opportunities, soliciting donations, and in-kind services to complete Phase I.
Project Background: Gary New Duluth Recreation Area is one of four qualifying parks for the Grand Avenue Parks Fund. The fund is part of the larger St. Louis River Corridor Project supported by the 1/2 and 1/2 tax fund. This specially designated funding will provide "destination-level" investments to qualifying parks. The Grand Avenue Parks Fund invests in community partnerships with user groups and residents to co-create and co-manage outdoor recreation experiences in the neighborhoods along the corridor.
Project Update: Phase I is completed with the community center being extensively remodeled, a large storage building constructed, two new soccer fields were created, an open air pavilion, large green space area, and a parking lot. Extensive water management measures were undertaken including re-grading the site, installing a culvert, drain tile, creating a large rain garden, and extensive landscaping.
Phases II & III plans were completed by the GNDDA and approved by the City of Duluth. The GNDDA opened the dog park in 2017. Their next goal for 2018 is to address drainage issues, install the sub-grade to facilitate additional parking, sport court, skate park, and community gardens.
