Ross Township Park


Ross Township Park Committee has been working hard for the community. We are happy to announce we received our first grant from the Irving S. Gilmore Foundation. Our park will be featured in their annual report and online Newsletter.

With the grant from the Gilmore Foundation you will see upgrades to both bathrooms, the remainder of the railroad ties removed and replaced with cement car stops. An ADA picnic table will be placed under the pavilion. Some money will be used for the playground project.

Ross Township is partnering with the Gull Lake Area Rotary Club on the Playground Project coming this summer. We are applying for the GLARC Grant.

We have have two Eagle Scout Projects scheduled along with the Playground Project. There will be several park benches and a Little Library Kiosk installed. The remainder of the woods will be cleaned out with an additional exploring trail.

Anyone wishing to purchase a memorial bench or make a donation can contact our Township Office for further information.
