Medina Sunrise Rotary Club held its annual Change of Gavel Ceremony, honoring outgoing president Kerry Gregoire and  incoming president Dr. Bob Hlasko, at Medina County Park District's Carolyn Ludwig Mugrage Park, located on Windfall Road. The ceremony was officiated by Rotary 6630 District (2023 - 2024) Governor Julie Brandle.
"Mugrage Park was established when Richard and Beverly Mugrage generously entered into an agreement to donate their 100 acre property to the park district," stated Nate Eppink, Director of the Medina County Parks District.  The park includes two parking lots, a one-mile paved multi-purpose trail, a one-mile gravel trail, a three-acre fishing pond, an accessible fishing pier, a picnic shelter, picnic tables, a dog park, and an inclusive playground. The inclusive playground is for children of all abilities to safely access and enjoy.  There are double-sized ramps for wheelchair users and a poured-in-place rubber safety surface that protects children from falls and also provides easy wheelchair access throughout the playground. We are grateful to the Friends of Medina County Parks, Inc., Medina Sunrise Rotary, as well as many individuals and organizations which raised over $250,000 to fund this playground.
