Pickaway County Park District Park and Trail Grant Program

What is the Park and Trail Grant Program?

Since 2015, the Pickaway County Park District has awarded over $190,000 to support 41 local park and trail projects here in Pickaway County.

In November of 2017, the citizens of Pickaway County approved a 10-year 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 $100,000 of its 2020 appropriations, for the 6th round of park and trail grants.
