Fuller Park Grand Opening was fun

Fuller Park officially opened today with a celebration at the park. Mayor Ron Gonzales was there, along with Councilpersons Ken Yeager and Cindy Chavez, and many other city dignitaries. As chairman of the Greater Gardner NAC (our Strong Neighborhoods Initiative group) Kevin Christman presided. Harvey Darnell spoke as President of North Willow Glen, and Dan Erceg spoke as the park's primary advocate from the neighborhood.

...Followed by BBQ food from the Smokehouse and fun in the park of various sorts. Representatives of the Northside neighborhood kicked off the Fuller Park Challenge Cup, which they proceeded to handily win from a game but inexperienced Greater Gardner team. It was a beautiful day and a truly fine neighborhood moment, a milestone in our community history.

Thanks to all the many neighbors who have contributed their time and energy to making this happen, and likewise to the city people who have been an asset in our quest to create something beautiful for ourselves and our children.

  1. Kudos to all who helped make the park happen so very well! It was an honor to be asked to play on the Bocce team, next year we'll have that trophy back!
