There are several sources proposed for this project. A key source is the Egbert M. Freese Foundation, a private entity that gives an annual endowment to the City of Galion for parks and recreation projects. The Crawford Partnership was awarded a $50,000 grant from the US Department of Agriculture for design and engineering. The State Capital Bill earmarked $500,000 for construction. Additional funds from private donors are currently being sought.
NO TAX LEVIES ARE BEING PROPOSED FOR THIS PROJECT.
