Special to 1812Blockhouse

Wednesday was an historic day for the Mansfield Noon Optimist Club

Wednesday’s groundbreaking of the Optimist Club Park, which will be located on property owned by Buckeye Imagination Museum, is the club’s tribute to the community as a “Friend of Youth” by providing a green space for the youth of Mansfield, Ohio. 

100 years ago, on October 1, 1923, the Mansfield Noon Optimist Club was chartered. The club’s goal was to be a “Friend of Youth.” As the Mansfield Noon Optimist Club celebrates its 100th year anniversary its goal to spread optimism and hope for the youth in our community has not changed.  

This project will benefit the community by creating a fun and engaging public park in the Imagination District – a major investment towards the betterment of the community for both children and adults.

Optimists Plan Park At Buckeye Imagination Museum

11 Oct , 2022  

Special to 1812Blockhouse

Last week, the Mansfield Noon Optimist Club was joined by Miss Ohio at the future of home of the Optimist Club Park in front of Buckeye Imagination Museum.  This project will benefit the community by creating a fun and engaging outdoor public gathering space in the Imagination District – a major investment towards the betterment of the community for both children and adults. 

Community parks have been found to create safe and beautiful spaces for community members to meet and interact and can greatly reduce an area’s level of violence and crime. Parks are also good for the local economy, as they can increase nearby property values up to 20% and attract visitors from all over. Overall, creating the only public-use park in downtown Mansfield will provide a safe and entertaining space for all visiting families.
