The Learning Stations Project was started in the Fall of 2015 by Howard Sacks and is a collaboration between faculty and students of Kenyon College, Mount Vernon Nazarene University, and Central Ohio Technical College in partnership with the Foundation Park Conservancy. These learning stations have been designed to enhance the on-site park experience for visitors of all ages, as well as provide an on-line educational tool for anyone, anywhere, to enjoy the holistic story about the park, the areas around it, and the Knox County community, including natural ecology, industrial history, society, and culture.

The initial Learning Stations were presented as a gift to Ariel-Foundation Park from Kenyon College, Mount Vernon Nazarene University, and Central Ohio Technical College in partnership with the Foundation Park Conservancy in the fall of 2017. Information about other sites in and around the park will be added in the future. A public unveiling of the Learning Stations Project will take place when the park reopens in April 2018.
