When the township trustees purchased the land at 1454 Rome Corners Road where the Township Hall now stands, their vision included the concept of a township park being built at some point in the future.
In 2016, plans for a park began to take shape through the efforts of the trustees, staff, and a residents' Parks Committee.
In March of 2017 $20,000 in seed money was appropriated to begin the Berkshire Community Park. It was agreed a play area for young children and a pollinator garden area for all to enjoy would be the first priorities moving forward.
In addition to the Township's concept, the Trustees agreed to the installation of a Born Learning Trail within the park. Born Learning Trails were created by United Way to help parents of very young children connect with their kids in a fun, interactive, and educational way. Berkshire is proud to be one of the first recipients of this exciting project sponsored by United Way of Delaware County and the Women's Leadership Network of United Way. In addition, our Born Learning Trail has custom artwork designed and installed by students from the Big Walnut High School National Art Honor Society. also, in partnership with United Way, volunteers from the Delaware Campus of Columbus State Community College installed the posts and signage for the trail. We hope you will come and visit soon!
