Memorial Park

Welcome to Memorial Park!  We have a lot of activities planned for this summer!  Sign up week is going on until 6/9.  If you happen to miss sign ups for things like basketball, tennis, or archery, we can accept a few sign ups.  Our other activities such as preschool and day camps have a limited number of spots, so once they are filled, we can not accept anyone new.

Also keep up to date with our Facebook, Twitter, and Instagram accounts.

 

A bit of History on Memorial Park

In 1945 the Saint Marys Service Men’s Club Trustees, Charles I. Houston, H.J. Brock, and R.E. Keim, became the first interested party in the development of Memorial Park. Its purpose being a memorial to the service men and women of the community, the three Trustees wanted to purchase the land and fund the improvements and developments of the park solely through voluntary subscriptions from the public, industries, and the like, which were to be kept by the Borough of Saint Marys in a separate fund: the Memorial Park Fund. Houston, Brock, and Keim purchased 15.3 acres of land from Urban J. and Alvina Gregory, Christ C. and Rose Wolfel, and John Cancilla and his wife. In turn, this was then purchased from the Trustees by the Borough through the Memorial Park Fund.
