The Juilfs Foundation, through its generous gifts, has made this 26-acre park the crown jewel of the ATPD. Children can live their dreams on the playground or exercise their imagination on a tricycle track complete with pretend gas pumps.
A popular .9 mile hike/bike trail winds around the park’s perimeter. Within its bounds reside two sand volleyball courts, a basketball court, three competition level ball diamonds, seasonal soccer fields, three tennis courts and restrooms (located on the backside of the office building). Sprinkled throughout the park are picnic tables with grills and two shelters; one includes a working fireplace.
Juilfs Water Play area construction is complete!
Construction of the Juilfs Park playground water play is complete! The water play area completes the well-received playground renovation and continues the playground’s farm theme with these features: a pig, rooster, horse, sheep and bull aqua sprayers; trickle tractor; and silo aqua sprayer.
The additional funding for the final phase was secured thanks to an Ohio Department of Natural Resources NatureWorks grant, and significant contributions from the Anderson Foundation for Parks and Recreation. The largest of the donations came from the Juilfs Foundation.
The water play area is adjacent to the existing playground, to the east of the swings. A grand opening will take place spring 2017.
Basketball court improvements coming fall 2016
Also planned for Juilfs Park is a renovation to the ever-popular basketball court. The make-over will include new backboards, new surfacing, freshly painted lines, and new benches. This particular amenity is a fan favorite of all ages, visited year-round for daily “Horse” and pick-up games. This improvement is also made possible by a substantial donation from the Juilfs Foundation. The basketball court renovation is expected to be completed this fall.
