Basketball Court Construction

The area for the court has been graded and the base gravel delivered. We are looking to have the court finished by Spring 2015. We are in need of some experienced concrete finishers to help get the court finished. Please contact Andrew McGhee at 740-385-8575 or use the Contact Form if you or someone you know can help!


We have broke ground! The Local 18 Ohio Operating Engineers are donating their time & equipment grading the area for the basketball court. The Local 18 Operating Engineers run an apprenticeship & training program for anyone interested in becoming an Operating Engineer. Operating Engineers build roads, bridges, and dams, and assist in construction of large buildings and other structures. To learn more about their program please visit

A special thanks to Mike Cooper and the Operating Engineers who are helping today!

Clean Restrooms!

If you visited the park this week and used the lavatory, you may have noticed a pleasant smell, clean floors, and clean toilets! Thank you ServiceMASTER Clean for stopping by and removing years of germs!

July Update

Halfway through July and we have made some major strides in the effort to restore the park! A special thanks to Boy Scout Troop 99 for helping out Saturday cutting out the fishing area and making the Canoe Launch usable again. One member even found turtle eggs on the canoe path and was taking them home to incubate them and then will release them back to the wild. Pretty cool stuff!

Another special thanks to 4-H who helped with painting equipment. They got the monkey bars, large slide, and some graffiti covered up under the bridge. No rain and low humidity should help the paint stay in place this time!

Community Volunteer Days

Come help with the revitalization effort! We will be doing sanding, painting, landscaping, brush removal, cleaning and more! Wear old clothes and expect to get dirty! There is lots to do and the more volunteers that come, the more we can accomplish!

We are planning the following Community Volunteer Days:

Thank you to all the Sponsors and Volunteers we have had thus far! If you or your business have not donated yet, please donate today so we may continue this effort!

June has arrived and we have kick started the project by digging some flower beds and planting flowers donated by Flowers by Darlene!

The city has also painted the flag pole and hung a new flag! And in honor of America, we have planted Red, White, and Blue flowers to match.

Basketball Court

A Canadian study in 2009 showed that children who live within a 1/2 mile of a park were 60% more likely to engage in walking and physical activity. We have a vision of placing a basketball court where the existing unused horseshoe pits are located. A full size NCAA court measures 94’x50′. This project would involve grading the area, pouring concrete or asphalt, and installing 2 basketball hoops. This project has been approved by the city but is not currently funded or have any volunteers. If you know a contractor that can help with any aspect of the project please encourage them to contact us!

Stump Removal

These stumps are unsightly and a trip hazard! There are two of these stumps and if you or someone you know can remove these, please contact us!

Soccer Field

What better way to enjoy a sunny day than a pick up game of soccer? All we need is a couple goals. We are looking for youth size goals that can be easily moved if necessary. Please contact us if you or your organization have used goals that can be donated toward this project.

Cooking Grills

The grills are literally falling apart! As they break they are being removed and not replaced. Jim Robinson and the Logan High School welding class have offered to try and build some new grills. Please contact Jim Robinson at the Logan High School if you can offer assistance in material, cutting or welding.

Swing sets

The swing sets are in need of paint and sand or woodchips to protect children in case of a fall. This project is not yet funded or volunteered for. Please contact us or Donate today!

93 S Bridge

Under the 93 S bridge, from the overflow parking lot to Kachelmacher there is graffiti that needs removed/covered up. This project currently is not funded or have volunteers yet. Please contact us if you are willing to help.
