A vendor is lined up to operate a food cart part time this summer at Osius Park.

“Wally’s Frozen Custard will be bring a cart to the park this summer on a trial basis on weekends,” said Grosse Pointe Shores Councilman Dan Schulte, liaison to the parks and harbor committee.

The vendor also will work during one or two home swim meets this year, added Mark Wollenweber, city manager.

“The biggest stumbling block so far is the health department,” Wollenweber said. “It has to meet health department regulations. We want to do this safely and properly.”

The harbor committee is considering aminiature golf course at the park. “It has to be cost effective,” Schulte said. “We’re looking at something that (has) maintenance-free turf, so there would be no work to do. We don’t have any quotes or figures.”
