The Ariel-Foundation Park, formerly a factory site, has been transformed into a multipurpose park hosting a variety of events. The public can attend the park to enjoy a concert series and other community events. Concerts take place during the summer months, highlighted by a gala day-long Fourth of July celebration centered on the Schnormeier Event Center. Another community event is the Rastin Challenge: 4-person teams participate in physical challenges including a stair climb up the Rastin Observation Tower stairs. Money raised supports a scholarship fund for Knox County residents interested in careers in safety services.
