Carroll County Park District

Wayne Chunat Retires from Carroll County Park Board

Wayne Chunat, Carroll County Park Board President, retired from the park board recently. Wayne is a founder of the park district and has worked tirelessly to improve parks and programs to residents county wide. As a founder, he worked with Probate Judge John Weyand to create the park district that became a reality in December of 1999. Since that time he orchestrated the purchase of the Peterson Farm and gracious donation of the Bluebird Farm Park by Joyce Hannon. The park district has made a number of improvements over the years as can be seen at the Bluebird Farm Park, 190 Alamo Road SE, and the Carroll Community Park, 1061 Salineville Road.

“The foundation that Wayne has created provides a solid path for the park district to follow. Wayne will be missed and definitely not forgotten,” stated Dale Alexander, Executive Director. “In addition, I am pleased to announce that the board appointed Rick Hannon as the new park board president. Rick has been extremely active regarding park district matters.”

The park district relies heavily on contributions for concerts, improvements and land acquisition. Contact Dale Alexander at or 330-627-8046 to make a contribution or sponsor an event.
