The past two years has brought on many changes for the Pataskala located Harley-Davidson dealership Centennial Park.

The past two years has brought on many changes for the Pataskala located Harley-Davidson dealership Centennial Park. The first step in the transformation of Centennial-Park was a change in the management team. General Manager Jeff Varney took charge of the store in May of 2012. Joining the leadership team in that same month was finance manager, Pokey Adams. Two months later Rick Thompson came on board as sales manager. Management then welcomed a MotorClothes Staff to give the department a fresh prospective. With an entirely new but highly experienced management team and associates in place the company focused on the surrounding landscape and the facility itself.

In September of 2012 Centennial Grove took root. One hundred specimen trees were hauled onto the property and planted. Thanks to Charles Hagy, prominent local conservationist and farmer, the land was sculpted and pristinely prepared. The Park also wishes to thank Pataskala Mayor David Butcher who gave the blessing on Centennial Grove’s formation. “The planting of the trees really show the commitment Bob has to Centennial and the city of Pataskala as a whole," stated Minister of Culture, Doug Kamerer. It is the hope and belief that as the trees of the grove flourish so will Centennial.

As the last trees in the grove were being planted the staff at Centennial-Park set its sights on a major parking lot addition and reconfiguration. On October 2, 2012 a massive new parking lot was opened. Since it’s completion the company has been putting the lot to good use by hosting the now annual Fall Party at the Park, the Chili Cook-Off and most recently Demo Days.

The last and perhaps most significant upgrade is the construction and completion of an additional showroom. The space is now the home to motorcycles and local Harley Owners Group Meetings. The Park is hosting motorcycle information sessions, Know-It-All Sessions, in the space as well. The investments made in the past year at Centennial totaled over $500,000, and there is a real sense of excitement about the people, systems, and physical changes taking place.

Centennial Park plans to hold their 2nd Annual Fall Party at the Park on Saturday, September 21st.
