Friends of the Park/Park Sponsors

Columbiana County Park District is launching a Recruitment Effort for our “Friends of the Park”. The Park District’s “Friends of the Parks” has been in existence for a number of years but has not been actively working to initiate projects to improve the park properties. We Plan To Change That!

We invite you to be a part of this new initiative. We know you support our work and our parks. Now you can be a part of an effort to start projects. We have some ideas but we are interested in hearing your ideas.

 Please join us on WEDNESDAY, April 26, 2017 at 6:00 p.m. at the PL&W Train Station on 235 South Market Street in Lisbon for a “Friends of the Park” organizational meeting. Please bring any and all, ideas you have to improve the parks and enhance our properties for the enjoyment of all.  We hope to see you there.

The Friends of the Park is a non-profit corporation organized to assist and support the improvement, maintenance, and preservation of our Columbiana County Parks.  It is a tax exempt public charity under Section 501 (c) (3) of the Internal Revenue Service Code and is eligible to receive tax deductible donations and gifts.

Friends of the Park, Inc. will use 100% of all donations to assist the Columbiana County Park District, which includes the Greenway Trail, Scenic Vista Park, S.R. 7 Supreme Court Site, and  Hellbender Bluff Park.  The CCPD operates on a limited annual budget with little money available for maintenance and improvement of our Parks.  Your involvement will help keep Columbiana County a place to be proud of.

Is your group looking for a community service project?

Maybe you just want to be associated with a successful local organization.  There are several ways to get involved both individually or as a group.  We offer memberships, sponsorship, and partnerships.  There is also our “Adopt a Trail” program.  We also have a need for specific equipment donations.  Maybe your group would like to provide trail enhancements through historical or natural interpretative signage.  We are also looking for tour guides and educational speakers to educate community groups and organizations.  Another area of involvement could be the restoration of the Rebecca Furnace, Sandy Beaver Canal sections or the Cherry Valley Coke Ovens.  As you can see, there are many opportunities for you or your organization to become involved.

So, if you’d like to have more of a hands-on experience with the trail or parks or to donate to the Friends of the Park…
