HISTORY (Research completed by Cheryl Michaels and Janet Ross 2009)

Berger Park is located at the rear alley off South Miami Avenue.  The park was named in honor of the late Carl Berger.  Mr. Berger was a civic-minded, benevolent, and leading industrialist who died in 1949.  He whole-heartedly supported youth organizations.  He served as manager for Sidney baseball commissions and served on athletic boards for baseball and softball.  He also served on the board of the Sidney Civic Association and was a member of the Shelby County Fair Board.  His keen civic-mindedness was reflected in his active association with various community projects.  He and his family held an annual event whereby they entertained all the children of the Shelby County Home to an all-day outing at Indian Lake at their expense each summer.
