Windcrest Park is located on the northeast side of Granger in the Windcrest Development and is accessible by going north from State Street.
Windcrest Park includes a stocked pond for fishing and a walking path with native prairie areas.
The City of Granger was awarded a $2000 grant from the Iowa Grocery Industry Association and Build With Bags that was used to purchase benches, planters, trash receptacles, and a picnic table to help finish construction at Windcrest Park.
The Build With Bags program is aimed at the following goals:
- Doubling the amount of plastic bags recycled over the next 24 months
- Reducing consumption of plastic bags
- Increasing use of reusable bags
- Encouraging purchases of furniture and equipment made from recycled plastic through a grant program for parks and schools.
Many thanks are extended to the staff at Grimes Fareway for their endorsement of this grant.
