• The Eli's Park Project

You Did It!

In early May we asked for your help. Dozens of you responded with letters, quotes and testimonials of how you and your loved ones plan to use Pathways Park. We are so grateful, so honored and so proud to tell you that it worked!


We are recipients of $850,000 of Dan Thompson Memorial funding!


Not only is this exciting news for our project, but for our entire state. In loving memory of Dan Thompson, a memorial fund was created in 2005. This year, in partnership with our legislature, $55 million has been allocated to different organizations and community groups who directly serve people with developmental disabilities.

What’s Next for Pathways Park?


This funding brings our total raised to just under $5.8 million! The project is almost ready to go to bid and then we’ll find out how much it will actually cost to build this amazing park. We’re hopeful we’ve raised enough to build it exactly as you’ve dreamed it.


Thank you for being there at every turn of this wild, winding pathway that has led to a park for us all.
