Ariel-Foundation Park, located in Mount Vernon, Ohio, a town of 16,000, is quickly gaining recognition on a larger stage. In addition to appearing in "Ohio" magazine in fall 2017, it was also featured in a regional publication this spring, and has been the subject of recent interest at the Massachusetts Institute of Technology (MIT) and in Victoria, Australia.
This is the Foundation Park Conservancy's first published Annual Report. It is the organization's intention to provide highlights of park activities and improvements in the last year as well as to recognize and honor our financial and in-kind supporters, and volunteers. THANK YOU to anyone who has contributed to the ongoing health of the park and its programming.
