The Friends of the Park is hoping to purchase a new sign that would be installed in the Ramsey Park zoo, and that would include a bench and a backdrop that represents the park and its amenities.
When visiting Redwood Falls, a trip through Ramsey Park is almost a given. While there are myriad opportunities for those who make a stop in the park to photograph the scenery, there really is no place that says “we were in Ramsey Park.” The Friends of the Park is hoping to address that through a new project it has announced recently. The project includes the purchase of a new sign that would be installed in the Ramsey Park zoo that would include a bench and a backdrop that represents the park and its amenities. Among those are a picture of a buffalo and an elk, with the idea to have this sign erected allowing people that chance to let people see where they have been and what the park offers.
The project was kicked off with a recent donation from the Redwood Falls Trav-elers Club. According to Dennis Moore, of the Travelers Club, the group wanted to demonstrate its support for the community, just like the community has shown its support for the club’s events. The project has an estimated cost of $18-20,000, with those individuals, groups or businesses interested in donating $1,000 being officially recognized at the site of the sign. Naturally, all donations are being accepted for the project. Those who are interested in making a donation can do so at the upcoming Ramsey Park jamboree, which is being held June 11. More information on that event follows in an upcoming edition of the Gazette. Gary Bestmann of the Friends of the Park expressed appreciation on behalf of the organization to the Travelers Club for its donation.
