A beautiful park is available to all GM Toledo Transmission employees, retirees, and their families. A Board of Directors that consists of both union and management operates the park. Each season, the park board hires students to maintain the park and operate a children's program that is available to the children and grandchildren of all Powertrain employees. (click on the additional resources below for views of the park and a map)

The park as it now exists is complete with a running track, two tennis courts, basketball courts, horseshoe pits, two playgrounds, sand volleyball courts,
two baseball diamonds, a 9-hole putt-putt golf course, two gazebos and five shelters that are available for family parties.

Employees of GM Toledo Transmission will be greeted by an enthusiastic group of attendants composed of five area college students who have been selected to work at the Family Recreation Park this summer. Their duties include checking in visitors, handing out equipment and park maintenance.
