Since Park District programs were first offered in 1996, over 40,000 people have attended nature and local history programs in the parks.
Since the Lowe-Volk Park Nature Center opened in December of 2002, over 31,000 people have visited the Nature Center. In addition, thousands of park visitors have come out to the parks to hike the trails, go fishing, or picnic.
The Crawford Park District was created in November 1994, and will celebrate its 10 year anniversary in November 2004. The growth of the Park District has been helped tremendously by conservation minded area citizens who have donated land such as Marie Unger of Bucyrus, Lloyd Volk of Sunbury, and Gerald Heckert of Bucyrus.
In addition, many volunteers have helped in park projects and helped the Friends of the Crawford Park District, a non-profit group, to raise the funding to construct the Lowe-Volk Park Nature Center which serves as the District headquarters.
The Park District is governed by a Board of three Park Commissioners appointed by Probate Judge Steven Eckstein. Current Park Commissioners are Richard Carpenter of Bucyrus, Mike Morton of Crestline, and Peg Degray of Galion.
Advisory Board members include: Mike Blaising, Sis Love, Mike McBeth, Jan Maddy, Emerson Eckstein, John Mizick, Jane Schnelker, Mike Jacobs, Bruce Truka, Steve Prochaska, Kyle Hartman, Gene Toy, and Tom Neidermier.
