  3. Pioneer Log Cabin (Adopted by 4 Scouts in process, one additional volunteer group is needed)

    The original logs of an 1880 pioneer log cabin have been donated to Pleasant View City.  Our desire is to reconstruct the cabin on a site near the bowery at Wadman Park.  An Eagle Scout Project has involved many segments of the project.  There in one additional segment needing volunteer assistance.

  5. Wood Chip Trail maintained at Wadman Park.

    The wood chip walking path at Wadman Park is in need of seasonal maintenance including spreading additional wood chips in portions of the trail and raking some edges where wood chips have been dispersed. 

  6. Refurbishing two informational signs at Wadman Park.
    1. Currently there are two standing wood signs without any information on them. The city would like trail maps of the park placed on the sign boards with additional information about the park such as: types of trees, vegetation and wildlife.

In Process

Develop a small neighborhood park area at 4120 N. 350 W. 

Currently the city ones a small piece of wooded spring area in a small depression. The area surrounded with grass, trees and some large rocks.  A protective chain link fence has protected the secluded area. With some planning and a little landscaping, it could become a beautiful nature area and possible picnic site
