Upgrade Girl Scout Park with picnic tables, fire pit and concrete pad for area events, meetings or gatherings.
Girl Scouts in Columbus recognized an opportunity to make improvements to Girl Scout Park, a gathering place for their troops, and developed a plan for upgrades and enhancements. With the Youth Contest grant, they were able to construct a concrete fire pit and add a new picnic table. Their hopes are for the space to provide “a place in our community for visitors to enjoy nature, for families to picnic and build strong bonds, and for people, especially kids, to unplug from technology.” Girl Scouts staff will hold events there, and it is open for community use as well. Girl Scout Park is located near Lake Babcock Park just north of Castner’s Crossing.
