Phase III – Finishing the Park
Underway now are the final pieces of McKinley Park.
Soon to be completed is the Sensory Garden, which will have natural plants, musical instruments, and other amenities which will stimulate the senses.
Recently completed is the Global Motion Climber!
Funding for Phase III was possible through a $10,000 grant from the DTE Energy Foundation, and private donations and fundraisers by the Fraser First Booster Club.
- $300,000 Michigan Natural Resources Trust Fund Grant
- $200,000 Land Water Conservation Fund Grant

What started as a small group of dedicated volunteers has turned into a project with community-wide support, including hundreds of donors, supporters, and volunteers that have helped make this project a success.
Contributors to the project include the hundreds of residents, friends, and supporters, private donors, the City of Fraser, and grants from the State of Michigan and the Land, Water, Conservation Fund.
McKinley Park is a “barrier-free” park and playground, offering accessible outdoor recreation for children and adults of all abilities, with a particular focus on the needs of those with special challenges.
