Schneider Park

 

Schneider Park Community Playground Build – Volunteers Needed

The development of the south end of Schneider Park along Alum Creek is nearly complete. The nearly 3.5 acre site includes a 330’x210’ athletic field, trail system that runs along Alum Creek and will connect with the Main Street sidewalk system, community shelter house and playground, parking and other support infrastructure. Supported through grant dollars from the Bexley Community Foundation (BCF), Ohio Department of Natural Resources (ODNR), the Columbus Blue Jackets Foundation and the City of Bexley, this park represents the first addition of park space in our community since the Jeffrey Mansion and Parks was deeded to the city in 1942.

Thanks to a $65,000 grant from the Columbus Blue Jackets Foundation, the park project will include a CBJ themed community playground. In an effort to bring community together for a common project, and to save a few dollars, we have scheduled a Schneider Park Community Playground Build on Friday, March 29th and Saturday, March 30th. We are asking for 4 shifts of 4 hours over the two day project. Our goal is to have 15 volunteers registered for each shift (individuals are more than welcome to register for multiple shifts).

We are very excited about the development of a community playground at Schneider Park. We want for this community build project to be a fun and fulfilling experience for all of our volunteers. Music, food, and drinks will be provided throughout the work days. To register to volunteer for the playground build please click here. For any questions, please contact Michael Price at the Bexley Recreation and Parks Department at 614.559.4300 or mprice@bexley.org. Once again, thank you to the Columbus Blue Jackets Foundation for their generous gift. Without their support the Schneider Park Playground wouldn’t be possible!

This space will enhance our community in many ways. The park will provide a 1.5 acre multipurpose athletic fields, a shelter house, a playground, walkable trails, and so much more.
