Juilfs Park Playground Update
We're excited to announce that phases one and two of the new Juilfs Park Playground are officially open for play! There's still more work to do: Phase three will feature a waterplay area (additional funds needed).

Stop by Juilfs Park today (8249 Clough Pike) and help us break in this new addition to the Anderson Township Park District!


Juilfs Park Playground Fundraising
Honor someone special and support your community through the Playground Fund! Leave a legacy for the “Apple of Your Eye” on the new, farm-themed playground. Donors of $100 or more will have their tribute featured in a lasting, meaningful, and creative way on the sponsor Apple Tree.

A portion of each donation will be used to purchase and install a tribute acknowledgement; proceeds from the balance of the donation go to the purchase of play equipment, surfaces, structures, and landscaping associated specifically with the 2012 Juilfs Park playground renovation. Sponsorships of any amount are welcomed and will be printed in an upcoming issue of the Park District’s Park Guide.

Park District staff welcomes the opportunity to discuss gift-giving options with you or your company! Contact Scott Lahman: (513) 388-5091.

Size
26.24 acres

Opening Date
July 19, 1986 

Acquisition
Juilfs Park is the product of two parcels.  In 1980, the south eight acres were donated by Elizabeth Juilfs.  The remaining 18 acres were purchased from the Juilfs Foundation in 1983. 

Description
The Juilfs Foundation, through its generous gifts, has made this 26-acre park the crown jewel of the ATPD. Children can live their dreams on the playground or exercise their imagination on a tricycle track complete with pretend gas pumps.

A popular .9 mile hike/bike trail winds around the park’s perimeter. Within its bounds reside two sand volleyball courts, a basketball court, three competition level ball diamonds, four lush soccer fields and three tennis courts.

Sprinkled throughout the park are picnic tables with grills and two shelters; one includes a working fireplace (permit required).
