Volunteers from various Columbus/Central Ohio Building Trades locals, in conjunction with the AFL-CIO, The Union Sportsmen’s Alliance, and The City of Columbus Recreation & Parks Department helped to rebuild Antrim Park’s pier.
Antrim is a nearly 120 acre park, which sits on a lake and the Olentangy Greenway Trail. The 2,400 square foot deck had fallen into disrepair and required renovations to its railing, decking, and benches. This volunteer project aimed to improve the structure and to add improvements such as benches and fishing rod holders. The project lasted two weeks, with a ribbon cutting and opening ceremony held on September 22, 2016, which featured remarks from Ohio AFL-CIO President Tim Burga and the Mayor of Columbus Andy Ginther.
