Anonymous Donation Will Pay For Shelter House At Riverbend

An anonymous donation will help pay for the replacement of another shelter house at the Riverbend Recreation area east of Findlay. Parks director Gary Pruitt says they estimate $300,000 should cover the cost of the entire project. The new structure will replace Shelter 4 near Giertz Lake.

The parks district is considering different design options. They include an open shelter, an open shelter with a short wall topped with a concrete pad on all four sides and a fireplace, or the second option – but with no fireplace.
