History: From the late 1990’s on the area was being surveyed and considered for a park area. Through pursuing various funding avenues the Parks and Recreation Department was able to purchase the land in 2003. Building a new park as well as a fire station was very well received by the neighbors in the Aboite Township area. Homestead Park opened in 2004 and was renamed Ronald G. Repka Memorial Park in 2012. The park is named after Ronald G. Repka who tragically lost his life after being struck by an impaired, speeding motorist while cycling on a country road. Repka's death helped prompt an ongoing campaign to develop safer off-road trails and sidewalks in Aboite Township which eventually led to the creation of the Aboite Trails Network.
