Memberships help support the needs of the park, including feeding the animals, assisting with veterinary costs, and facilities enhancements.
In 2022, we completed renovations to the Townley Family Children’s Barn including new windows, floor, siding, and doors. We also made improvements for both the animals and the rangers who care for them. The windows can now be opened to help with ventilation and fresh air for the animals. We installed a hot water heater so the rangers no longer have to haul hot water from the carriage house in the winter months. Additionally, a new stamped concrete floor was installed, as well as updates to the chicken coops, the animal stalls, the ramp to the side yard, and a new handicap accessible viewing platform. All of the work performed was kept as historically accurate as possible to try to maintain the beautiful historical architecture of the barn.
In 2023 we are working on revamping the fitness trail. The trail will be cleared of overgrowth and brush and many pieces of new equipment will be installed. Signage will be updated so that the trail is more clearly marked, as well as exercises for each of the new pieces of fitness equipment. The current fitness trail is a 1.8 mile loop that starts next to the playground and follows the edges of the park all the way around.
This work would not have been possible without the support of our wonderful members and donors!
