A few short years after Glendalough State Park was established in 1991, volunteers banded together to form the Glendalough Park Partners. Their dedication and generosity are reflected in the quality experience this park offers.
Everything from the modern restrooms to the trail signs, from prairie flower transplants to wildlife blinds, and bike fix-it stations to archery equipment; all were made possible, in part by the Park Partner’s fundraising and volunteer labor.
President Steve Nelson explains that while the group has been successful in fundraising, it is the stewardship of the park that is their ultimate goal. “We do all this work because we want the park to remain here as an asset to the community, in its primitive form,” he said.
