Benzinger Park offers summer activities for all ages

The staff at Benzinger Park in St. Marys will be busy this summer as the park continues to provide activities for individuals of all ages. This year, Park Director John Schneider, who is in his 20th year at the facility, has 13 summer workers helping to ensure that members of the public are provided with quality programs, especially those geared toward area youth. "We're basically here running the programs and also have the responsibility for the concession stand and then just the upkeep and maintenance around the park," Schneider said. "We also do some minor stuff at the little playground over on Averyville Road."
