Eagle Scout Projects

The Glandorf Park Board would like to thank those involved with the Eagle Scout projects associated with
the Glandorf Park this year.

One Eagle Scout project, led by Alex Hoehn, was the restoration of the playground area. This includes the
power-washing and weather-sealing of the Dragon Twowers and other playground equipment, and the addition
of 12 tons of pea gravel.

Information regarding the other Eagle Scout projects to come.

Concrete Parking Lot
The Glandorf Park Board would like to thank Tim & Jenn Duling of The Concrete Couple and Dale
Niese of Dale's Concrete for working together on this project to help the Park Board stay
within budget.

With a ramp added, the parking lot is now handicap accessible.

Garden Club Looking
For More Volunteers

The Glandorf Garden Club are looking for more volunteers to keep the park looking beautiful.
Please come to the park on Thursday evenings at 6:30 p.m. to help out.

Recent and Future Park
Improvement Projects

Current projects that volunteers are working on or have been completed include:

  • Continued work at Deter's Park. New sign being installed and arhcitectural planning work will
    begin this year.

  • Running water and drain lines to the concession stand at Deter's Park.

  • Paving the parking lot on the East side of the park will start this year.

  • Maintenance work and sealing of Dragon Towers.

    Some future projects we are looking into are a new concession stand and restrooms by the ball diamonds
    in the main park, this is in the planning stages.

    We are always looking for people to help. Anyone interested in donating their time and talent, contact
    one of the park board members.

    You may also help set up on Thursday evening (a truly unbelievable feat), work at a booth, or clean up on Sat./Sun. mornings.

    It's a great way to meet new people in and around Glandorf.

    Donating to the Glandorf Park?

    "Is there a Glandorf Park
    project that I can donate to?"

    Donations can be made to the Glandorf Park Board and sent to P.O. 135, Glandorf, Ohio 45858.
