Grants Awarded to Burkhart

Grants have helped with the development of Burkhart Creek County Park.

The Kendrick Foundation, Inc.

  • Jan. 2008: $50,000
    The Kendrick Foundation, Inc. awarded Burkhart Creek $50,000. These funds helped develop the “hill trails” and provided additional leverage for the early work on the RTP trails.

Burkhart Creek Park Trail

  • Aug. 2008 - Department of Natural Resources (DNR): $150,000
    In alignment with Gov. Mitch Daniels' "Hoosiers on the Move" trails initiative, the DNR requested monies to fund several trails throughout the state of Indiana for multi-use local trail projects. The goal is to increase recreational trail opportunities "close to home," in line with the governor's 10-year plan, which calls for every Hoosier to be within 15 minutes of a trail. This project will develop approximately 2 miles of stone and asphalt trail and trailhead at Burkhart Creek Park. The RTP grant was approved in 2008 and received the final signature (state attorney general) in February 2009.

Initial Gift

  • Indiana Department of Natural Resources
    Indiana Department of Natural Resources donated 83 acre parcel of land with deed restrictions that essentially require the property to be used as a natural, low impact park for county residents. The park includes shelter houses, a parking area, and hiking trails.
