UPDATE ON THE NEW LAMONT COMMUNITY PARK...
After obtaining ownership (in 2010) to the three acres of land where the Lamont Elementary School stood for 75 or so years, the Lamont Civic Association began to develop a community park - right in the heart of our beautiful village. In the summer of 2013, several used pieces of playground equipment were erected and installed - including a swing set and a monkey bar unit purchased with grants from the Coopersville Area Community Foundation Youth Committee. In addition, eight very sturdy picnic tables were purchased with a grant from the CACF. The Lamont Civic Association is so grateful for the funding by this local foundation - making these special purchases possible. At the same time, construction has begun on the planned Memorial to the old Lamont School. The cupola from the school was salvaged during demolition and has been refurbished and placed on a cement monument - surrounded by a patio. This patio is constructed of engraved bricks which are being sold to local residents and former Lamont School students. If you are interested in purchasing a brick and supporting this historic effort, click on the engraved brick application below. We have also been able to purchase a volleyball set and charcoal grill with another CACF grant. We also constructed a hiking path through the wooded portion of the park and a parking lot. A beautiful new sign welcomes Lamont residents to enjoy their new community park. If you have additional ideas for your park, please contact a member of the Civic Association board listed on the contact page. Your tax-deductible donations would also be appreciated - and put to good use for landscaping maintenance.
