Located at the intersection of Jefferson and North Delphos streets, the park features two playgrounds, a basketball court, a picnic table, pavilion and a hill that can be used for sledding in the winter. The park, named after Civil War veteran Orlando Somers, was gifted to the city in 1920 by Somers a year before his death.

This past June, the Center Township Team worked together and helped revitalize Somers Park. They laid down fresh mulch in the playground areas, fresh rocks near the BBQ grill, picked up sticks and brush, and pulled weeds. There is even a new sign on order! The Team helped each other make the park look like new. Because of their hard work, the Trustee treated them to ice cream. The photos below captured the busy day.
