What is the Gahanna Parks & Recreation Foundation?
Established in 2008 to help improve the quality of parks and recreation services for a healthier Gahanna. Since our inception, we have brought in more than $445,000 through community sponsorships, events and donations and have given back more than $250,000 with an additional $70,000 pledged in scholarships, park improvements, community partnerships and more.
The Gahanna Parks & Recreation Foundation was founded to assist the Gahanna Department of Parks & Recreation in supporting these needs.
