Two parks in Lake Township will be receiving artwork that is being donated by two township trustees.
Richard Welling is donating a metal sunflower sculpture to recognize the efforts of the volunteers who belong to Friends of Lake Township Parks. The sculpture will be placed in Friendship Park located next to the administration building on Cummings Road.
Trustee Ron Sims and his wife are funding a chainsaw artist to carve a seven-foot tree stump at Moline Meadows Park. Sims said the artist will carve depictions of an eagle, raccoon and bear cub in the stump.
The township received the park site on Moline-Martin Road under forfeiture in 2011. It covers about one acre.
Sims said a dedication for the park is planned for Sept. 22.
