Ariel-Foundation Park, now in its fifth year, was recently recognized by several publications and websites as a top destination. Its unique features such as the Rastin Observation Tower, The Terraces, The Ruins and The Lakes make the park a great outdoor getaway spot, especially during the COVID-19 pandemic.

PART-TIME EVENT FACILITATORS
Work for three esteemed venues. Great potential for hours and growth. Ideal for retirees, teachers wanting summer employment, college students, etc. Could be seasonal; potential to be year-round. Must be a HS graduate.
The Foundation Park Conservancy met virtually on the morning of Monday, March 23, to discuss events and items related to Ariel-Foundation Park and the current COVID-19 situation. Public health is a priority for park leadership and is a major reason for the park’s existence.
Steady progress is being made on the wildflower/pollinator gardens on the west side of Ariel-Foundation Park. If the weather cooperates, discing is happening this week to prepare the soil for the winter.
