AUBURN — A grand-opening celebration will take place Saturday at Greenhurst Commons, a new nature park on North Main Street.
The park occupies the grounds of the former Greenhurst Country Club. Features of the golf course have been removed, and a system of paved trails has been installed.
Saturday’s open house begins at 10 a.m. and continues until 2 p.m.
More than 20 organizations will offer free activities for families at stations throughout the park. They will be as diverse as yoga, painting birdhouses and an obstacle course.
“We’re just really excited to get people out using the park, knowing that it’s open. Peoplc can just walk, bike and enjoy the nature,” said Kendra Klink, associate director of The James Foundation of Rick and Vicki James, which owns the park along with the Cairn Foundation of Mark and Abby Millett of Auburn.
Maps of the park’s trails will be available, Klink said. Guests are welcome to bring blankets and have lunch in the park. A food truck, Whip and Chill, will sell dessert items.
Klink said other organizations sponsoring activities at the open house are: the Garrett Police Department, Hoosier Air Museum, DeKalb Health, Eckhart Public Library, St Mark’s Lutheran Church, the Auburn Cord Duesenberg Automobile Museum, DeKalb Central Schools, Fresh Food Hub, the Auburn Cord Duesenberg Festival, the Auburn Development Advisory Committee, the YMCA of DeKalb County, Taylor Rental Party Plus, DeKalb Horsemen’s Association, Proactive Spine and Joint, Shelter Insurance, Turning Point Dance Academy and The BodywoRx Co.
