Union City Heritage Water Trail

Organized in 1923, The Women's
Tuesday Club was committed to "the
promotion of
literary, scientific, social and civic
pursuits . . ." In 1957, under the leadership of Lillian Schwendener, they began realizing a dream of a family-type park. Using $900 accumulated for a community betterment project. they purchased 2.5 acres of weed and mosquito-infested lowland along the river and beside the site of the former Randall Mill. With tons of fill and thousands of hours of donated labor, this park took shape. A park board was established and land owned by the township and village was also added to this cooperative project. The park was dedicated on May 30, 1958. In 1960, a scrapbook history of the club's work on this project won a $300 Sears and Roebuck award for civic improvement. While the Women's Tuesday Club no longer exists, the Green Thumb Garden Club helps maintain this lovely park. Paddlers are invited to pull out here for a break.
