ONE OLD HOMESTEAD RD., GLEN ARBOR, MI
(Continued from Page 48)
you probably know, that provides some of the most beautiful landscape views in the country. The drive, located south of Sleeping Bear Dunes, is now wholly owned by the National Park Service.
“The court, with posts and lumber for the backstop donated by Pierce Stocking, and much of the  nishing labor donated, cost only $1,000,” the Enterprise reported.
“Two shuf eboard courts are  nished, too, and will be put to use as soon as equipment arrives for them.”
While that was the start to the Glen Arbor Park story, it certainly wasn’t the end as voters in August 2017 approved a massive renovation and improvement plan that was scheduled to  nish up in the spring. Passage allowed
the township to take out a $650,000 bond that is being paid back over seven years through a .25-mill property tax.
The project allows summertime visitors to enjoy new play equipment, three pickleball courts, walking paths, a picnic area and
a bathroom. The upgrades
will brought the park into compliance with the Americans with Disabilities Act.
“We’re very excited about and anxious to make the park a focal point in the village of Glen Arbor,” township park commissioner Ron Calsbeek, who worked on the project, told the Leelanau Enterprise.
There is no entrance or membership fee to use the park, so consider thanking a property owner in the township for the new recreational opportunities available to all.
