Generosity for the good of the community

Donations of time, talent and treasure by the family of donors named here, made possible the creation of two beautiful, award-winning community parks.   Private citizens, businesses, non-profit organizations and civic organizations, were critical in funding the construction of Sloan Johnson Oso de Oro Lake Park in 1995 and Trolley Creek Park in 2004.  Commitment of labor, materials, money, expertise, time, and ideas, made the parks’ plans into reality.
