Project ROMP (Revitalize Our Mound Park) is supported through a collaborative effort with the City Of Portsmouth, the Scioto Foundation, corporate and private donors. The project fundraising kicked off with Connex being awarded the first Scioto 365 grant from the Scioto Foundation.
Connex sold commemorative bricks and received generous donations from area businesses and individuals and was able to raise a little over $100,000 dollars for the activity path project. The project will consist of a paved activity path through part of the park and a plaza where bricks and plaques with donor names along with a monument depicting a map of the original earthwork mounds that once existed here. Along with the map will be some history about the origins of the earthworks. It is our hope that this path will encourage local citizens to get out to Mound Park and enjoy it’s beauty and history as well as get a little exercise.
Work on the plaza and path should begin very soon! So stay tuned!
