Public invited to Ariel-Foundation Park opening day reception

 

MOUNT VERNON, Ohio — Ariel-Foundation Park will hold an opening day reception on Saturday, March 31, in the Urton Clock House/Museum, from noon until 2 p.m. Light refreshments will be available.

While the park does not officially open for the 2018 season until Monday, April 2, this reception will be a time for the public to learn about upcoming events at the park like the free concert and movie series. Guests can also explore the Museum and discover volunteer opportunities.

During this time, Foundation Park Conservancy will also debut the brand new Learning Stations project, an ongoing collaborative effort among Kenyon College, Mount Vernon Nazarene University and Central Ohio Technical College faculty and students. Attendees can browse the learning stations online.

Several learning stations have been designed to enhance the on-site park experience for visitors of all ages, as well as provide an online educational tool for anyone, anywhere, to enjoy the holistic story about the park, the areas around it, and the Knox County community, including natural ecology, industrial history, society, and culture. Information about other sites in and around the park will be added in the future. More learning stations will be added over time and instructions on how to use them will be found in the park kiosks and on the park website.

For more information about the opening day reception or anything regarding Ariel-Foundation Park, please call 740-398-6603 or e-mail marketing@arielfoundationpark.org. Follow the park on Facebook for all the latest news and info.
