Westwood Park

December 10th, 2014

This park, formerly named Sunrise Hill Park, was jointly developed by the city and a local community organization in 1973. The community funded the installation of "a tot basketball court, a Swedish gym/obstacle course, a trail blazer slide, 'frontier post,' steam engine replica, park benches, round tables, asphalt, grass and a few trees." However, it wasn't long before "local teenagers" destroyed the new playground equipment, and the park was returned to its natural state by 1980. I wonder if the asphalt pad behind the guardrail is a remnant of the old playground.
