OUR STORY

On behalf of the Leo-Cedarville Park Board, we hope your past visits to our wonderful parks have been enjoyable experiences. Our parks system has changed significantly since the Town incorporated over 20 years ago. The construction of the Imagination Station at Leo-Cedarville Park, the creation of Riverside Gardens Park, the construction of the splash pad/beach volleyball courts/ walking paths/etc. at Riverside Gardens Park, and the most recent construction of the new Park Building at Leo-Cedarville Park are just a few highlights of the amazing projects undertaken to improve the parks system. The Park Board is pleased to provide these services and amenities to all visitors without charging for admission into the parks, however, we need assistance to cover the costs.

THE ISSUE

Did you know the average resident of Leo-Cedarville only pays around $18.00 per year in property taxes to support the parks system? That is about $1.50 per month. Compared to many other monthly bills, that is a great bargain. While property taxes go a long way towards supporting the parks system, unfortunately, property taxes alone are not enough to sustain the current amenities provided. The Park Board can raise additional funds through the rental of our facilities at both parks (pavilions/building/etc.), which is still not enough to sustain the provided amenities.

WHAT CAN YOU DO?

The Leo-Cedarville Park Board needs your support to continue to provide extraordinary services and features to our users. To assist with this effort, the Park Board has created the “Friends of Leo-Cedarville Parks” Donation Program to receive donations and help support our parks. The purpose of the new program is to raise additional funds for any additions, the continual improvement and maintenance of the parks system. If you love our parks and want to show your support, this program is for you!

Annual memberships are being sought at the following levels of support:

  • Friend – $50
  • Member – $100
  • Sponsor – $200
  • Patron – $500

In addition to being recognized on a donor plaque at both parks, Members, Sponsors, and Patrons will receive a gift for their donations.

  • Members – Friends Logo T-Shirt
  • Sponsors – Friends Logo Sweatshirt
  • Patrons – Friends Logo T-Shirt, Sweatshirt, and Coffee Mug

*Initial distribution of gifts will occur in October 2017.
