Background and HistoryOur mission at Mead Park is to maintain and improve upon the dream of Glenn Mead, a Corry native, who wanted residents of the City of Corry to have a place to enjoy the natural beauty of the area. The land for the park was donated by Glenn Mead.
Mead Park is a non-profit organization. Mr. Mead also left an endowment fund to help maintain the park. Along with tax dollars from the City of Corry, we have applied for and received financial support from the United Fund of the Corry Area, the Corry Community Foundation, the Erie Community Foundation, the Jesse Flick Foundation, and NW Savings David Nichols Trust. Our relationship with these generous local foundations has proved to be a major source of funds for maintenance and improvements to the Park.
Board members are volunteers that live within the Corry City limits. We welcome citizens from the surrounding area to attend our meetings that are held the 3rd Tuesday, each month except in December. Meetings are at 7:00 PM and are held in Nichols Lodge on the park property April through October November through March meetings are held in City Council chambers. We are happy to be in the initial stages of forming an auxiliary group The Friends of Mead Park who will add a new dimension to our volunteer efforts in support of the Park.
