(Osgood, Ind.) – A mini park in Osgood is being revitalized.

Iron Timbers, who specializes in custom wood and metalworks, is currently working on a project to update the Lions Club Park on Main Street in Osgood.

Plans include revamping the entire park with brand new landscaping and a large 40-foot interactive sculpture of the word “Osgood”.

The funds for the sculpture materials and landscaping have officially been raised thanks to the Reynolds Foundation.

Other additions to the park include a mural on the nearby Taylor’s Tae Kwon Do building.

The landscaping is scheduled to begin sometime in mid-June and should take about four or five weeks to complete. The sculpture is expected to be completed by mid-September.

According to Iron Timbers, they estimate a need to raise an additional $50,000 for work associated with the mural.

To raise funds, there will be more than 2,300-square-feet of new red brick at the park. For each $100 donation, community members may get their name engraved on a brick.

The deadline for brick donations is June 30.

Community members may also donate to a GoFundMe page. To date, $2,625 of the $50,000 goal has been raised.

  • The Witches of Breakout

    The Witches National Convention was held in our room last night! We found out that they made plans to turn everyone who isn't a witch into a black cat or a bat. They locked the spell they need in the Breakout EDU box. The Spell was written in magic ink, and if it stays in the box for more than 45 minutes, it will be cast! If we can open the box before the 45 minutes are up, contact with air will break the spell. Work together to unlock the boxes and undo the magic of the Witches of Breakout!
