Project ROMP (Revitalize Our Mound Park) was accomplished through a collaborative effort with the City Of Portsmouth, the Scioto Foundation, corporate and private donors. The project fundraising kicked off when Connex was awarded the first Scioto 365 grant from the Scioto Foundation cira 2017. The idea for a activity path in Mound Park was submitted by Connex during the grant writing process in the hopes that it would lead to more paths being constructed in the area. On October 20, 2019 Connex will be dedicated the new Mound Park Donor Plaza & Activity Path to the City of Portsmouth. After the ribbon cutting ceremony the community was invited to stroll along the path. Area businesses set up along the way and passed out treats to children. Along with the make shift halloween, Connex offered a bike rodeo on the basketball court. Free helmets were given away.
My son just turned 3 and he wanted a bike for his birthday. Living on a busy street we were about a safe place to ride. Mound Park's activity path offers a smooth and safe alternative to the side streets.
When working with Connex they took our concerns seriously. They wanted to make sure the mounds were untouched and showcased.
The activity path brings new life to the park offering a space for families to enjoy.
Creating a beautiful area for all to enjoy.
Looping with the park, this activity path offers a safe space of childern to learn how to ride bike, for families to stroll through or friends to jog through.
By adding the activity path, we improved the crub appeal.
Inspiring Health Through Play.
