Rotary Club of Marion, IL
2005 Centennial Project
Tilden and Rosalie Parks
Outdoor Amphitheater
Pictured above is the Tilden and Rosalie Parks Amphitheater which the Rotary Club of Marion, IL broke ground in May, 2004. This amphitheater is the club's 2005 centennial project and will be constructed on the Marion High School athletic field SW of the present high school on South Carbon Street. The  amphitheater was named for a local couple, Tilden and Rosalie Parks, who donated $50,000 towards the construction costs. Tilden is a retired cattle broker and felt this amphitheater would be a good way to help the citizens of Marion provide a forum for entertainment and new ideas.
