Mead Park Association
The accessibility of the 46 acre Mead Park inside the city limits greatly enhances the quality of life for the entire community. Low income individuals and families especially benefit. Many have limited resources and opportunities for leisure time and healthy physical activities in a safe outdoor setting. All amenities at the Park are provided at no cost to users. People can walk through the Park and enjoy the rustic wooded property. Play equipment, picnic areas, a fitness trail, restroom facilities, tennis courts, a basketball court and open field area are maintained for the recreational use of anyone visiting the Park. Summertime includes youth(under age 16)fishing in Alice Lake(stocked annually by the Mead Park Association). An ice rink is one again available for winter recreation.
Local groups and organizations hold events in Park. They include boy and girl scout troops, reunions, weddings, IMPACT Corry, YMCA, Relay for Life, Chamber of Commerce, City Police, Corry Area School District, Greater Erie YMCA, Union City Support Center, and area churches.
Maintaining the Park to today's standards us an ongoing process for the Mead Park Association and City. The association generates funds and is responsible for day to day operation and maintenance of the City owned Park. The Friends of Mead Park have donated countless hours over the past two years repairing, painting, power washing and landscaping throughout the Park. Association dollars have been used to replace old and purchase new equipment, materials, and supplies. Bringing the Park into the 21st century while maintaining the historical integrity of the Park is the primary focus of the 2017 long range Master Site Plan. Currently, Plan Phase I Construction is in process, which is the construction of two new restrooms to be completed this year
