Earlier this year the Community Foundation of St. Clair County, the Ralph C. Wilson Foundation and St. Clair County Parks and Recreation Commission invited multi-purpose courts to apply for a grant to improve their facility. Of some of the applications, Fort Gratiot Township was approved to transform the underutilized North River Park tennis courts into multi-purpose courts. The west tennis court will change to roller hockey and a basketball court, utilizing existing fencing and basketball nets, and adding boards and two hockey nets. The east court will continue to offer tennis and will add fencing and a net suitable for pickleball, as well as a new practice wall on the north fence. Funding was also proposed for bins for equipment that will be made available at no cost to users. Among the approved applications Faith Lutheran Church in Port Huron will also be improving their outside courts.
