In 2019, Jim Schmidt donated 67 acres of land to Grand Haven Charter Township to be made into a park.
Prein&Newhof is working with Grand Haven Charter Township to design, bid, and oversee construction for Phase One of Schmidt Heritage Park. As you can see in the video, construction is underway!
This phase is planned to have 12 pickleball courts, six soccer fields, a softball field and a baseball field, a trail around the perimeter of the park, restrooms, shelters, and a parking lot. The entrance to the park will be on Ferris Street across from Hofma Park.
Future phases will include two youth baseball diamonds and two softball fields along with more restrooms, shelter, and parking.
“We have created what I believe will be the premiere sports complex among the municipalities in this area.”
– Bill Cargo, Grand Haven Township Supervisor
