The Friends of Erie MetroParks recently received grants and donations from the Erie County community. The Frost-Parker Foundation contributed $5,700 for the deck and Sandusky/Erie County Community Foundation contributed $3,779 for the building of the boardwalk. Other donors included Mathews Ford, Elks Lodge $285, Townsend Ruritan Club,& Lindsley Insurance with the total grant money being $10,429. 

This money was used to build a new deck and boardwalk off the Castalia Quarry MetroParks parking lot. These new features were unveiled Sept. 8 at the Friends Go Take a Hike Kickoff.  This new addition will be used for group programs, family picnics and gathering area.
