Roeder Park is the site of the old Glendale Store, for many years the hub of village life in Glendale. This property consists of two parcels given to the Association by Benjamin F. Roeder on August 31, 1964. Mr. Roeder and his wife had for many years operated the general store on the site, but it collapsed under the weight of snow earlier that year. On this small property there is a gazebo, given to the Association by the Glendale Union Chapel Society in 1998, after the Glendale Chapel was disbanded.
