Since 2019, Lake Parks Foundation has annually sponsored a baseball team for the Miracle League of Lake County which enables children and youth athletes with physical and mental disabilities to build self-esteem, make new friends, and delight in the experience of playing baseball.
In honor of David Noble, former Lake Metroparks executive director, we were able to secure additional funds from family and friends through Lake Parks Foundation to build the Noble Traverse Wall for kids of all ages to enjoy at Jordan Creek Park.
The new 50-foot coastal observation tower at Lake Erie Bluffs overlooks the lakeshore with multiple viewing platforms along a staircase that culminates in a deck featuring 360-degree views. The height and location of the tower provide visitors with a unique view of the lake and the surrounding woods, fields and wetlands, along with a variety of wildlife – particularly a large number of bald eagles that are regularly seen at the park.
We are proud to help bring new excitement to children and their families while at the Farmpark. The project is one of several recent improvements and upgrades undertaken by the park and will serve as a hands-on area for kids and adults, offering relaxation, play and educational demonstrations.
Lake Parks Foundation is a 501(c)3 nonprofit dedicated to enhancing the quality of life in Lake County by preserving land, environment and natural heritage and to create and develop opportunities for conservation, education, recreation and relaxation.
