Macomb Corners Park will have a new playground for children with special needs this summer, according to a report in The Macomb Daily.

The funding will come from Community Development Block Grant funds, according to The Macomb Daily. CDBG programs provide funds for a variety of community development needs, according to the U.S. Department of Housing and Urban Development.

Parks and Recreation will close park with first significant snowfall.
Last weekend’s snowfall didn’t close Macomb Corners Park, but its days open are numbered, according to Gina Muszynski, Facilities Supervisor with the Parks and Recreation Department. The first noteworthy snowfall - snow that sticks to the ground - will cause Parks and Rec to close the park, located along 25 Mile Road. That’s because maintaining the 94-acre park during the winter is a significant job in itself, Muszynski said. If the park were to stay open, a work crew would be needed to keep the 1-mile asphalt walking path, the parking lot, and other roadways clear. In addition, the bathrooms are shutdown to prevent pipes from bursting. As of Monday, the park was still open from 8 a.m. until dusk. “When we get that snow that sticks …
