The City of Mt. Pleasant was recently granted a Regional Prosperity Initiative 2018 Mini-Grant from the East Michigan Council of Governments to construct a year-round restroom facility at Mission Creek Park. This park is home to Hannah’s Dog Park, the Mission Creek Sled Hill, and various nature and hiking trails.
The new restroom facility is open seven days a week, 8:00 a.m. – 3:30 p.m. during the winter months, and 8:00 a.m. – 11:00 p.m. from May to October. The heated, well-lit facility features a universally accessible modern design which includes baby changing stations and an exterior security camera system. A concession stand and winter warming station will open at a later date.
Chris Bundy, Director of Parks and Public Spaces for the City of Mt. Pleasant shared, “This project is a perfect example of how our community comes together, pools its resources and provides valuable amenities for all of its residents.” He continued, “We are grateful to the community partners who, in addition to the mini-grant funding, made this project a reality.” Funding partners include: The City of Mt. Pleasant Capital Improvement Fund, Saginaw Chippewa Indian Tribe 2% distribution, Charter Township of Union and Mercantile Bank.
