The Centerville-Washington Park District recently received close to $24,000 in grant money from the Ohio Division of Natural Resources Division of Wildlife Shooting Range Program. The grant will allow us to open additional archery shooting lanes at the existing range at Oak Grove Park. The lanes will be at varied distances, with new hanging bag targets.
The grant will also provide funding for more seating areas and equipment storage. We will install permanent quivers and additional bow racks for each lane, and a more visible safety flag system. An equipment shed and less cumbersome official NASP targets will provide benefits for beginner archery clinics and leagues. Additionally, the grant will allow us to make the range more accessible for Adapted Sports archery clinics!
The improvements to the range should be completed this fall — just in time for the National Hunting and Fishing Day event at Oak Grove Park on September 24! Mark your calendars!
