Six men from C&W Construction of Alliance, Ohio, who install playground equipment for David Williams & Associates, arrived at 6:30 am on Sept. 17th to install our playground equipment at the Rowland Nature Preserve.
It was amazing to be a part of the playground construction, which consisted of laying out 52 holes, drilling them 18″ diameter and 20″ deep, assembling all of the playground pieces, pouring concrete in the holes and being completed in 10 hours. They were packed up and out of the park at 4:30 pm. It was a pleasure working with the C&W’s crew and it was a fun way to spend the day.

Trustee Rob Scheithauer took some pictures at the Rowland Nature Preserve on January 4, 2013, to show the purpose of the windmill. When the windmill blades turn they are pumping air to an air stone that is tied below the two duck decoys. The air generated from the windmill is keeping the lake from totally freezing and this generates oxygen in the water so the fish can survive the winter. The diameter of the water ring is approximately 20′. A word of caution for the ice fisherman: keep your distance from this water ring because, obviously, the ice is thinner in this area.
