About this grant

The Genesee County Parks & Recreation Commission is dedicated to providing all the residents of Genesee County with affordable, quality recreational and educational facilities. The Genesee County parks are widely utilized as accessible and inexpensive recreational and nature opportunities for local residents, and attendance in most facilities has either held constant or increased despite the recent critical economic conditions. This grant will enable the commission to replace approximately four and a half miles of railroad track used solely by the Huckleberry Railroad and restore the pedestrian bridge that links the trails through For-Mar Nature Preserve and Arboretum.
