Ox Bow County Park close to tower fundraising goal


Ox Bow County Park has been raising funds over the last three years to replace a historic tower that was burned down by vandals.  The tower was 45 feet tall and was used for observation at the park.  The new tower will be the same height with wider decks on each of the 3 levels.  The bottom level will also be handicap accessible.

Superintendent of Operations, Ronda DeCaire believes with some hard work, they will be able to reach the Fundraising Goal.  "We have raised 107 thousand dollars and we have received a matching grant from the Elkhart County Community Foundation in April for 32 thousand dollars," DeClaire said, "so we are one third of our way to meeting that goal so we just need another 23 thousand dollars."  If they do no raise the 32 thousand by May 1, 2014, they loose the grant.

For information or interest in donation to the tower fund, contact Elkhart County Parks at (574) 535-6458.
