Friends of Graner Park Work to Reclaim Space

Posted: Updated:

 

Graner Park was ravaged during the summer flood in 2011, and despite last year's efforts to bring the area back to its former state, more work is still needed.  Friends of Graner Park get together for a clean-up day in hopes of bringing the Park back to its former beauty.

"This was all green grass there and trees.  We had a lot of trees here.  Those are all gone, because of the flood, and we're just getting it back in shape, says Randy Graner, Friends of Graner Park.

"A county of our size has limited staffing and funding, so Randy Graner and this group, the Friends of Graner Park, are integral to get this Park back up and running the way all the Morton County citizens want it to," says Cody Schulz, Morton County Commissioner.

There are only two area parks adjacent to the Missouri River -- Graner Park and Fort Lincoln.
If you can help these volunteers get the Park in shape, they're urging people to go to the Friends of Graner Park Facebook page.
