OUTDOOR POOL FACILITY
Better Living for Garrison has partnered with Garrison Parks & Recreation to plan and develop a project to improve the Garrison outdoor pool facility. Planning for the project will include a survey to gather community input on overall Garrison Parks & Recreation facilities and programs in order to support development of a Parks facility and program master plan. The pool facility is in need of repair and update of the plumbing and chemical treatment system, updating and modification to ensure accessibility of the pool building, and repair of the kiddie pool or possible replacement of the kiddie pool with a splash pad. It is anticipated this will be a phased, multi-year project.
1) The community survey has been completed and confirmed that the outdoor pool facility is a desired feature of the community and most respondents indicated they would like to see a splash pad incorporated in a remodel of the pool facility.
2) Garrison Parks & Recreation applied for and received a Park District Facility Renovation Grant through the North Dakota Parks & Recreation Department in the amount of $278,481.01 to assist with the costs of the project. There are additional funds committed through local sources to fund the anticipated cost of the pool renovation project.
3) Garrison Parks & Recreation has experienced problems in obtaining appropriate architectural and engineering services to proceed with the project and is currently in the process of contracting with a new firm to provide those services as of November 2023.
TENNIS COURT RESURFACE PROJECT
Better Living for Garrison has established a project to resurface the outdoor tennis court facility in Garrison. The project includes repair of the asphalt surface and replacement of the court markings. The project will include conversion of a portion of the tennis court to a pickleball court. The project is in initial planning/design and cost estimating.
