Project Funders

The Ziegler Park renovation was sparked by a visit from the Kantor, Knue and Mattis families in 2012. They were looking for a way to honor their the memory of their husband, father, and friend, Milton, who had passed away earlier in the year, and Ziegler Park turned out to be the perfect fit. The Kantor, Knue, and Mattis families provided the catalytic gift that got the project started, but many other generous foundations and individuals have also stepped forward to support this transformative park.
