John Glenn Astronomy Park WiFi Community Access

Project led by Friends of Hocking Hills

About the project.

This project will provide funding for community Wifi at the John Glenn Astronomy Park. With more than 20,000 visitors annually, Wifi will provide guests with the opportunity for educational programs that are available by download to their cell phone, computer or table. These programs offer insight into our plaza features, along with live stream star gazing and pre-recorded presentations.  Additionally, local residents would be able to utilize our Wifi by visiting the plaza.
