Parks Fund Grants


The Parks and Recreation Division has been a proud partner with over 50 community organizations over the past six years supporting positive impacts through the Duluth Parks Grant Fund. We are at the juncture where we need to reinvest these funds to maximize on internal capacities to better serve our diverse and widespread constituency.    

Over the years, our division has seen disparities in parks maintenance and a growing list of deferred projects which have reached critical stages. In order to better maintain and fulfill our stewardship responsibilities across the city, we are going to phase out the Duluth Parks Fund grants after the fall 2018 grant round.

The increasing needs are not reflected in our stagnant Parks budget. The Parks and Recreation division is going to reallocate these funds to focus on community assets such as aging playground infrastructures, failing pedestrian bridges, implement an asset management plan and support the Park Ranger program.

These areas of focus ensure that our funds and services are stretched equitably across the city for the benefit of all community members.
