Friends of Strouds Run
(2008-09-08)
(WOUB) - Strouds Run State Park may not be very big or busy but it is beloved, at least by one group.

The Friends of Strouds Run State Park has been around for three years and is working to keep the Athens County facility ship-shape.

David Reiser is president of the Friends group...which recently attained non-profit status.

Reiser says that should help bring in the money necessary to make improvements.

Reiser says the group - which has about 30 members - is currently working on a better system to identify trails - making them more friendly for bikers, walkers and horseback riders.

The Friends of Strouds Run State Park was created in 2005 when the City of Athens was thinking about acquiring the park from the state, a proposal that was eventually rejected by City Council.
