The public park land was was given to Ridge Farm by Dr. Boswell Ward. Fittingly, the park was named after its donor. Numerous activities are held each year at the park; Easter Egg Hunt, "Thunder on the Ridge" and the annual firefighters Fish Fry Fundraiser.
The Wayne Blakeney building was later added to the park as a source of hosting events in doors at the park. The Wayne Blakeney building is available for rent through the Village Hall (217-247-2239)
The park and building are maintained by the Village of Ridge Farm. Each person visiting is expected to take care of the property. Please follow the information about On-Going Projects on our "About" page for updates and plans for the park.
