Waterloo, IN- The Waterloo Park Board has announced a pop-up party to celebrate fundraising efforts for building a new the Veterans Memorial Park on Monday, April 1, 2019 from 5:00-6:30 p.m at 385 W Walnut Street. This is the site of the new park.

Waterloo fire fighters will be grilling tasty pork burgers and hotdogs, and serving them for free, along with chips and a drink. The Army National Guard will be on site with a bungee run for the kids and to provide information about the Guard.

The park board will be on hand to talk about the future park. After collecting public input and reviewing drawings of past ideas for the park, they have developed a plan that they believe will be the pride and joy of Waterloo for generations to come. When completed, every resident in the town will live within a half mile of a park with easy access to free recreational opportunities.

It’s a big project so they’re going to build it in two phases.  Phase 1 started with the launch of a crowd-funding website on Friday, March 15. The campaign is off to a good start.  If the campaign reaches its $48,750 goal by May 1st, the “Waterloo Veterans Memorial Park” project will receive a matching grant of $48,750 from IHCDA's CreatINg Places program.

April 1 is no JOKE when it comes to free food and fun.  Several large donations have been announced and the event on Monday will celebrate this generosity and build excitement for the park.
