On January 25 of this year, Mr. Ron Zartman, Park & Education Manager at Fox Island retired after over 33 years of service to the Allen County Park Department. Ron served in many capacities over the years both at Fox Island and our other parks as well. You may well have had Ron lead you on hike when you were back in school or perhaps your children came here on a school field trip over the years. The Allen County Park Board and the staff wish to thank Ron for his service and the many things he did to further our mission and make the Allen County Park system better! Best wishes on your retirement Ron, you have surely earned it!
