Green, OH – The Ohio State Legislature approved its capital budget on May 4, which includes $400,000 to the City of Green for its Central Park.
Representative Anthony Devitis assisted the City in securing the funds for the new park to open on July 9.
“Central Park will be the heart of central Green, the convergence of what makes Green such a special place to live,” said Mayor Gerard Neugebauer. “Parks are amenities that families and businesses alike desire in their community. As the tenth public park in Green, it is designed to bring people together as well as serve as a driver for future economic development.”
The eight-acre park is located adjacent to the City’s Central Administration Building and is situated next to the Green Local Schools’ Intermediate school and Memorial Stadium. The park will feature a one-mile walking path, 500-person amphitheater, splash pad, playground, community building and plaza for the City’s farmers market.
“Representative Anthony Devitis took the initiative to secure this funding for the City of Green and for his efforts we are greatly appreciative,” said Neugebauer.
A July 9 grand opening is planned for the park, 1795 Steese Road.
