Weilmunster Park to be Dedicated August 15th
The Garden Valley Recreation District has announced the date for the Weilmunster Park dedication. This is an important event in the history of Garden Valley. For years the Garden Valley Recreation District, headed by Jamie Anderson, has worked tirelessly to make the park a reality. They identified the property location and have applied for grants, solicited donations, managed fundraisers, and kept the community involved and informed.
I can’t think of a better location for the park. I especially like the idea that it includes some Middle Fork river frontage. No matter what happens to private and public land along the Middle Fork in the future, our kids will always have a place to play in the river. The addition of the walking path which ties the park to the school property is a huge plus. Although not fully developed yet, the plans for the park will offer ball fields, picnic areas and playgrounds.
The ceremony is planned for Friday, August 15th at 4:00 pm.
Governor Butch Otter plans to attend. The park is a great asset to our community. I plan to attend the ceremony so that I can personally thank all of the Garden Valley Recreation District board members and all of the folks who have made the park possible. See you there!
Current Board Members are:
President Jamie Anderson
Vice President Jeff Bass
Secretary Holly Mortimer
Treasurer Carol Smith
