About Us

History of Tarzan Enterprises

Dan Parks, President, started Tarzan Enterprises 35 years ago following the footsteps of his father, Jim Parks, a well-known developer in the Dayton Ohio area. 

Dan Parks, President of Tarzan Enterprises Inc. in Xenia Ohio

Dan grew up in Bellbrook Ohio and graduated from Beavercreek High School.  Not sure if he wanted to settle down in the excavating business, Dan ventured out to try some other professions that included welding.  But Dan does things in a big way and did not settle for welding as we know it.  He learned out to scuba dive and then put those skills together as an underwater welder - a very dangerous occupation.

Years later, Dan decided to come back to Ohio and work side-by-side with his father, to gain knowledge of the excavating business. One of his first experiences was working on a major residential development project called "Tara Estates " in the Beavercreek area — an upscale residential community with a 5 acre pond that he helped build.

Since then Dan has accumulated a long list of satisfied clients for residential and commercial excavation.

Get to Know Dan Parks

Dan married his high school sweetheart and lives in Xenia Ohio.  He has two daughters and a young son. He and his wife built their current house in 1994.

Currently, Dan's biggest past times include bass fishing and restoring a 1967 Grand Prix hot rod.

First and foremost is his bass fishing.  He frequently goes to bass tournaments and has fished from Mexico to Alaska.

Closer to home, he fishes at his cabin in Kentucky on the Licking River in the middle of a National Forest.   And yes, he has a pond on his property in Xenia.

My current hobby

Dan's red 1967 Grand Prix is still a work-in-progress, although you may find him at the weekly Friday night car rallies across from The Greene in Beavercreek.   His particular car is rare in that only 655 were made.  Dan does all the "beautifying" himself, including the welding and sanding.

Our Pet
