Throughout the year our planning and development team has a variety of opportunities for visitors and community members to provide input on projects and plans. Check back here periodically for how YOU can help guide future projects at the Metroparks.
2024 Land and Water Conservation Fund Grant Application
Lake St. Clair Metropark North Marina Bathhouse Renovation
Each year, your Metroparks seek grant funding to complement our annual budget, improve facilities, create or improve recreation opportunities, and increase accessibility – providing opportunities for everyone to enjoy the parks. This year, we are submitting one project to the Land and Water Conservation Fund to provide important amenities to the Lake St. Clair Metropark’s North Marina area. We are committed to removing barriers, creating and improving access, and increasing recreation opportunities for all, and if awarded, these grant funds will improve accessibility to water and trail recreation at Lake St. Clair Metropark.
We are seeking input on the proposed project: Lake St. Clair Metropark North Marina Bathhouse Renovation. If awarded, the grant project would renovate the existing restrooms with a new North Marina Bathhouse and associated amenities using universal design principles to improve accessibility – including adding an outdoor gathering space for visitors to relax along the lakeshore.
Below is a link to more information about the proposed project that includes a brief survey for your input at the end. We also want to hear from your family and friends if you can share the link below with them as well.
