You may have noticed a brand new look in the Greenville City Park. Through the efforts of the non-profit group, Friends of the Greenville City Parks, the Treasured Island in the large pond has been restored.

Planning and fundraising efforts began last September. The group held a 50/50 reverse raffle that raised close to $5000. Donations large and small were received from those who wished to help. Local VFW Post 7262 donated funds to purchase a 30’ flagpole. The Coppock Hole Foundation, a longtime supporter of community beautification projects, provided a sizeable donation which allowed the project to become a reality this spring.

Many hours of planning went into the project which was managed by local contractor, Tom Lucas. Tom volunteered to work with Hupman’s Landscape and Piqua Crane Co. to plan the logistics of moving equipment and supplies to the site. Each step of the project was planned out to maximize the time and cost of the restoration which was completed in 3 days.

To thank all those involved who donated time, money and services, a dedication of the Treasured Island will take place on Sunday July 9 at 5:00. Everyone is welcome to attend. The dedication will be held at the northwest corner of the large pond beside Wilson Ave. Please bring your own lawn chair.
