The Summit on the Park, Canton’s premier community recreation center, was the recent recipient of a $10,000 donation generously provided by Ahmed Family Fund in memory of their father Mohammed Basheer Ahmed. This significant contribution was used to construct a patio courtyard behind the Summit on the Park, located at 46000 Summit Parkway in Canton, MI.
Canton Township celebrated the opening of this tranquil outdoor area, which was designed and installed by Reliable Landscaping of Canton, with a special dedication ceremony that was attended by friends and family of Mohammed Basheer Ahmed, a long-time member of the Summit on the Park who was an avid swimmer in the Summit Aquatic Center and guest of Canton Club 55+.
“We are extremely grateful to receive such a substantial donation from the Ahmed family,” said Canton Leisure Services Director Greg Hohenberger. “This contribution has helped us make an immediate impact on the aesthetics of this outdoor space, so that it can be enjoyed now and also appreciated by visitors to the Summit for years to come.”
Moving forward, this outdoor area will be used by Canton Club 55+ to offer gardening opportunities, as well as a location for special events. In addition, continued support from the Ahmed Family Fund, which is administered by the Canton Community Foundation, will enable the development and implementation of future health and wellness programs.
Since 1996, the Summit on the Park has been enhancing members’ and visitors’ experiences by providing quality fitness and wellness opportunities that encourage personal development, community building, and lifelong well-being. The Summit on the Park, located at 46000 Summit Parkway in Canton, MI, is home to a fitness and aquatic center; aerobics studio; gymnasium, racquetball court and indoor track; steam room and sauna; and Kids’ Corner Child Care Center; and all the tools needed to achieve a healthy and active lifestyle.
