Mill Creek MetroParks receives new endowments


Mill Creek MetroParks has received several significant endowments so far this year.

At a meeting Monday, the park board accepted a naming rights proposal for Fellows Riverside Gardens’ Rose Garden, which will be named after Joanne F. Beeghly, who died last year. Her family established a $215,000 endowment fund to benefit the Rose Garden, MetroParks Development Director Chris Litton said.

Naming rights also are in the works for the MetroParks Bikeway, following the establishment of a $100,000 endowment.

An anonymous donor endowed $200,000 to Ford Nature Center. Also, a group donated $5,500 for a new nature trail endowment fund, Litton said.
