I grew up in the Mott Park area in the 60s & 70s. I went to Durant-Turri Mott for kindergarten & St. John Vianney from 1st-8th. It was a great time to be a child with that fantastic community gem in my backyard. We played baseball, football, kickball, tennis, flew kites, enjoyed the sledding hill on Nolan Drive & the ice rink the city would make for us on the golf course. In the summer, we would leave our houses & not come back until the street lights came on. No one ever worried about us; it was a safe environment with many people around watching & supervising usa true community. I loved the Tot-Lot programs & improvements that were continually being made to keep up this amenity. When we got cold in the winter, we could go in the clubhouse by the ice rink & get hot chocolate!
