Your help is needed to fund Wooster Memorial Park’s 39-acre Lehr Road Addition to Expand Nature Recreation and Protected Public Forest.

The Lehr Road Property adjoins WMP’s northern boundary and hosts a mix of upland forest, pine plantations, and homestead/yard situated above the Little Killbuck Creek. In addition to its high-quality natural hardwood forests, the site is a Certified Ohio Tree Farm and supports a wide diversity of Ohio’s native flora and fauna.

About Friends of Wooster Memorial Park

Established in 2000, then in 2002 the Friends became an Ohio non-profit corporation with the following purpose:


“Friends of Wooster Memorial Park recognizes and appreciates Paul S. Spangler’s foresight and generous gift of this park to the City of Wooster, as well as the donations from the community that have enhanced this gift. As a volunteer organization that values the natural features of the park, Friends of Wooster Memorial Park shall work with the City as an advocate for the park in the following ways:

  1. Assist in caring for and improving the park while retaining the park’s natural character for future generations;

  2. Expand public awareness and appreciation of the park in ways that are compatible with the natural areas and foot trails;

  3. Increase knowledge and understanding of the park’s natural history;

  4. Encourage additional gifts and financial support that appropriately benefit the park in accordance with the purpose of this organization.”

Together, we can achieve our purpose and benefit this beautiful park.
