Upgrades to the land near State Road 23 and Elm Road are coming, but there are a few more hurdles to clear. Construction is still expected in 2016.
A survey of the land has been completed, and a final design is underway. The park will include connection to the Granger Path, a playground, basketball court, pickleball courts, and at least one pavilion.
Getting all the proper approvals is taking longer than initially expected. Once we’ve cleared that hurdle, the project will go to bid.
Harris Township announced plans to build a new park on Elm Road earlier this year. Now those plans will include the help of the Granger Sunrise Rotary Club. WSBT’s Patrick Roth reports.
Granger Sunrise Rotary is joining Harris Township’s effort to create a pedestrian park in Granger. The Granger Sunrise Rotary is part of the worldwide organization, Rotary International. Rotary is a volunteer organization of 1.2 million business and professional leaders united worldwide to provide humanitarian service and help build goodwill and peace.
Granger Sunrise Rotary is making a multi-year commitment to build and grow a playground on the land between the fire station and library branch on the east side of Elm Road just north of State Road23. Rotary will hold fund-raisers in order to add on to the project. Items that will be added to the park include swings, slide, picnic tables and a pavilion.
Playground construction is expected to begin spring 2016.
The Granger Sunrise Rotary is currently recruiting volunteers to help with installing playground equipment and related duties. They are also accepting cash donations to help fund the project
Soccer Shots, a local organization, joined ECHO Soccer Club in making use of Harris Township’s play field located on Elm Road, between the library and fire station.
Check our Event Calendar if you’re interested in what is happening, and when. Any organized use of the field is by permission of the township; don’t hesitate to contact us. No promises for 2016, as we’re likely making changes to the park layout.
