CRESTLINE — The Crawford Park District will have a general open house on Thursday, Aug.25, to celebrate the 100th birthday of the National Park Service.

There will be an optional guided hike in Lowe-Volk Park at 2 p.m.

Lowe-Volk Park is three miles north of US 30. For information, call 419-683-9000, go to or visit the Park District’s Facebook page.
