Mission At Ziegler Park, we promote inclusion by strengthening the bonds of community through recreation. We welcome all, regardless of gender, race, socioeconomic status, or physical ability. With a commitment to ensure that everyone in the neighborhood has a clean, safe, and fun place to enjoy, it is our mission to offer free and reduced-cost activities, leagues, and clinics, as well as pool memberships for all.
Serving Our Community Ziegler Park continues to improve the physical, economic, and social conditions in the OTR/Pendleton neighborhoods by reducing crime, bringing new commercial activity to the area, and offering free programmed activities to neighborhood youth. We’ve also created numerous jobs, hiring from within the community whenever possible. The Everybody In program was designed to make pool access affordable to all and provides a variety of free programs, primarily geared toward neighborhood youth. This summer, free programs included a swim team (33 participants), swim lessons and clinics (193 participants), a weekly drop-in basketball program, and an eight-week summer camp with 80 children. In 2019, we hope to increase participation in these programs. We would also like to introduce a class for adults who want to learn how to swim.
