PARKS

A Southern Park

As someone who lives in the southern section of Sterling Heights, I am always dismayed that we have few real park opportunities south of Dodge Park.

In my plan, the city would find space to carve out a pocket park in the 14-15 mile area of the city. This would allow people to walk/run and picnic without having to travel to Dodge Park or the northern parts of our city.

With a population of 132,000, Sterling Heights could use some of the new recreation money to build new parks, so no resident is ever far from a recreation opportunity.
