April showers are not slowing down the positive changes in Dayton. I want to thank the Park Board for their efforts to build the new dugouts and improvements to the baseball field at Gil Lynn Park. In more park news, we’ve applied for a Recreational Trail Program grant to build trails at Sergeant Park. If this grant request is successful, it will be an important step in revitalizing Sergeant Park.
We started April with a ribbon cutting at Hometown Heroes Sports Cafe, a new family friendly restaurant located at 517 Sixth Avenue. There is a lot of activity and interest on our Main Street and we should have more exciting announcements later in the month.
Late in March, we learned that Doyle Country Club, located east of the flood wall on Mary Ingles Highway on the Ohio Riverfront in Dayton,.was successful in their application for designation on the National Register of Historic Places. Doyle County Club is the last of the Ohio River beach clubs that were popular in the early 1900s.
I’d also like to congratulate the Green Knight chess teams success at the Queen City Classic 2017. Great job!
The bike racks I mentioned last month have arrived and will soon be installed along Sixth Avenue. So, as the days lengthen and the weather gets warmer get out enjoy all our great city has to offer!
Until next month,
