Past Special Events

In September of 2011, University Park hosted a celebration honoring the 125th anniversary of our neighborhood.  Events of the celebration included a Walking Tour around park guided by historians, authors and residents Don and Carolyn Etters, Live Music, a Neighborhood History Tent, a program honoring long time residents, a live auction including that of a commemorative painting by artist Betsy Johnson Welty’s, the sale of signed prints of the commemorative art,  a tree dedication, tours of the Observatory, kids’ activities and a large pot luck that included lots of food from neighborhood businesses.

The UPCC  still has a limited number of commemorative prints of Betsy Johnson Welty water color of the Observatory available for $20. Click to purchase.

We would like to thank our sponsors for contributing to the fun and success of the event. A complete list and what each sponsor gave is below.
