Big Changes coming to the Green Isle Park System!
Dan Dauffenbach, former resident of Green Isle has donated $250,000.00 to our Park System. The Park Board and the Baseball Board have been busy putting plans together to give our residents a fun, beautiful park system.
The Baseball Park will be installing an electronic scoreboard. The old scoreboard was rotting so the timing of this gift was perfect. Currently, a new Utility Shed is being built. This building will be used for storage of city equipment and a meeting room. A new backstop will also be put in place.
The Lions Park will be home for a new slide with climbing cubes, a tetherball unit, and a pop-up ball unit. Wentzlaff Construction and Vos Construction of Green Isle will be removing the old slide equipment, the pea rock, and cement footings. These companies have donated their time and labor. We thank them so much!
The Veterans Park adjacent lot will be a new park on the west end of our city. The city is in the process of rezoning this lot from commercial to residential. The new park will have playground equipment, a gazebo, and picnic tables.
The Green Isle Community School is looking into their wants for some handicapped playground equipment at the Baseball Park Playground. We are so happy to be able to provide a playing area for all children.
The install at the Lions Park and the new park will happen as soon as we have completed the steps of rezoning, ordering, and getting an install date.
We hope all of you will enjoy these new additions to our City Park System and we thank Dan so very much for this awesome gift.
