"I am proud to serve on the Harding Park Board with my fellow commissioners since 2001. It is my hope that we continue to make Harding Park a central part of our Hubbard community."
"Over the past three decades Hubbard Harding Park has been an important part of my family. My father, Ray Kyle, was a dedicated park board member for over 20 years. I am honored to carry on the tradition and commitment of serving on the board as Hubbard Harding Park continues to be an invaluable park in Trumbull County."
"I was born and raised in Hubbard and have lived next to Harding Park for 40 years. I enjoyed working there in high school. My family has been connected to the park since George T.

History of Harding Park
Land donated in 1922
Park dedicated in 1923
Harding Park was once a farm with a little creek running through it called Mud Run. It was owned by Jacob
Kalver, a close personal friend of President Warren G. Harding, the 29th President of the United States and Ohio native. In 1922 Jacob Kalver donated the land - 37.6 acres - to the village of Hubbard for
use as a park with reservations that the name “Harding Park” was to be perpetual and that it be used for playgrounds
and public recreation. In August of 2023, Harding Park was dedicated in a ceremony attended by an estimated 20,000 people . Praised at the time as being one of the finest natural reserves in the area, Harding Park works to fulfill the original intent of the historic gift while preserving the natural environment.
