You've Never Seen A Park Like This..

Ariel-Foundation Park in Mount Vernon, Ohio offers many things to do for all visitors to come each year. Once gravel quarries, the 3 lakes are now used (with restrictions) for boating and fishing. Surrounding the lakes are 7 pavilions that offer the perfect place to sit down and enjoy a picnic, as well as paved pathways, public restrooms, and park benches to sit down and enjoy the picturesque environment.

The Isthmus to Mavis Island

Visitors enjoy the historic bowstring truss bridge and especially love the isthmus that guide you to Mavis Island, which was named after Mayor Richard Mavis for his support and leadership in the park's development. Make reservations at The First Knox Pavilion or an alternate pavilion to hold a family gathering, class reunion, or birthday party to have a gorgeous setting and plenty of space to celebrate.
