Project Status: Planning
Smithville Park improvements are based on recommendations made by the City Council approved St. Louis River Corridor Neighborhood Parks Mini Master Plans, passed in June 2016. Smithville Park is a relatively unknown, unused, and undeveloped seven acre park in the Smithville neighborhood just east of Grand Avenue. The scope of the project will be further defined once the funding match and City staff capacity to move forward are met.
Smithville Park is one of thirteen parks along the St. Louis River Corridor that was identified as part of the larger St. Louis River Corridor Initiative. These parks are eligible for designated 1/2 and 1/2 tax funds.
The City of Duluth will partner with user groups and residents to co-create and co-manage outdoor recreation experiences in the neighborhood parks along the corridor. The 9:1 match requires that a $10,000 of the project's funding be generated through community efforts, which can include cash donations, other grant funds, in-kind volunteer hours, and in kind donations of materials and professional services
