Since 2015, the Pickaway County Park District has awarded almost $16,000 to support 17 local park and trail projects herein Pickaway County.
In November of 2017, the citizens of Pickaway County approved a 10 year, .5 mil levy, to support Park District operations and to increase and improve parks and trails throughout the county. To follow through with promises made during the levy campaign, the Park District has set aside $25,000, five times the 2017 level, for its 4th round of park and trail grants. The Park District plans on significantly increasing that amount for 2019, with those applications being due sometime in late December 2018.

My name is Arista Hartzler and I was born and raised in Pickaway County as well as graduated from Logan Elm High School. I attended Ohio University and graduated in 2017 with a Bachelors of Arts and Science in Environmental Geography, minoring in Environmental and Plant Biology and earning a certificate in Geographic Information Systems. My husband and I now live in Lancaster, Ohio where we enjoy hiking, backpacking, and camping with our Fox Terrier, Millie. We help run our family's local Christmas tree business, The Lands Tree Farm, and so are very connected with our roots here in Pickaway County. I previously worked at Pickaway Soil and Water Conservation District as their District Technician and am very excited to be stepping into the Executive Management Assistant position with the Park District. I am most excited to serve the residences of Pickaway County and provide them the opportunity to get outdoors and explore our beautiful county through our current parks and trails as well as through our many exciting, and upcoming developments!
