In addition to housing 32 free beds for the Urban Greens community garden, Restoration Park provides open space overlooking the Muskingum River. This park has been the location for several community events including a food truck rally, local harvest parties, and a summer movie series. As the park has become more active in recent years, community support has made several developments possible, including a living willow structure by local artist Howard Peller, the planting of fruit trees, a big dipper installation that pays homage to the area's involvement in the Underground Railroad, and plans for a natural earth stage for entertainment and music.
The park is located on the west side of the intersection of Muskingum Avenue and Putnam Avenue. While the park is located in the historic Putnam neighborhood, it is open for all residents and visitors to use and enjoy.
Join us for the first ever Weasel 200, a 200-step walk from Restoration Park to Weasel Boy Brewing Co. from 11 a.m. to 3 p.m. Saturday, November 3. The first three to complete the walk will receive an award!
The Weasel 200 is $20 to participate. Those who register by October 17 will be guaranteed a limited edition Weasel 200 T-shirt. Funds generated through this event will be used to construct an earthen stage for future entertainment at the park and to support an annual movie/concert series.
Join us at Weasel Boy after the race for kegs and eggs, featuring our unique breakfast pizza available from 11 a.m. to 3 p.m. All Weasel 200 participants will receive a coupon for 10 percent off of their food purchases at Weasel Boy that day.
If you’re not able to make it to the Weasel 200, we hope you'll stop by sometime to see all that we're doing. If you’re interested in helping us continue to develop and improve this important landmark with a donation, no amount is too large or too small. We're grateful for each and every dollar.
