Thank you to all who donated for the Fund Your Park campaign. The funds raised will help with the construction of a public park at Ridge Park. The Community came together and raised over 86% of the funds needed for the project in just 45 days! Fundraising efforts continue through the Bowling Green parks & Recreation Foundation. Donations can be sent to: BG Parks & Recreation Foundation, 1291 Conneaut Ave, BG, OH 43402. We're looking forward to making things happening in July 2015 at Ridge Park!
