As summer draws nearer, so do events and the Knox County Park District has been busy taking calls regarding Ariel-Foundation Park. Please note that we do not manage Ariel-Foundation Park. This is a misconception many people have in the community. Although we do partner with them in events, we do not operate or manage the park or any of the city parks such as Riverside or Memorial. To contact the event coordinator with Ariel Foundation, please call Angela at 740-501-9293 or contact the City of Mount Vernon for the other parks at 740-393-9577. The parks we operate include; Wolf Run, Honey Run Highlands and Waterfall, Thayer Ridge, Indian Field Bluffs, Bat Nest, and Hellbender Preserve.
