Aylward liked visiting the parks with his grandchildren so much that he decided to join the Liberty Twp. Parks Committee. He now serves as the group’s treasurer.
“I wanted the kids to experience what Liberty Twp. was all about,” Aylward said. “This was a way to do it that was fun. The program encouraged us to visit all of the parks to complete the passport.”
About 50 people normally complete the passport each year. Because the online passport was only uploaded to the Liberty Twp. website about two weeks ago, Gloyd does not yet know if more families will participate as a result.
“This program is such a fantastic way for entire families to experience Liberty Twp.’s park system,” Gloyd said. “We have such an amazing park system. It should really give residents of sense of pride to have such beautiful parks in their community.”
