A Place to Play
We now have play structures for children, young and old. There are two sets of swings, a climbing dome, spring seahorses for young children, and a complex climbing structure called the "Dutton House". This climbing structure is our most ambitious project. Based on a photo of the original house that once stood on this site and built to scale the structure offers something for all ages. It was quite an effort to design and build and the results show the community's interest in honoring our town's history. Thank you David!
There is a large outdoor barbecue pit and picnic benches that can be rented for weddings, reunions or other events. The structure was designed in honor of Elmer Nelson who would haul in bricks and grates from the Sonoma County Fair Grounds to barbecue for our yearly school fund raiser. The park is fully handicap accessible with graded paths to all areas and handicap accessible bathrooms.
A Place to Relax
And finally we wished to create a place to just relax. Tomales is the town that West Marin forgot and we like it that way. A few times a year the park comes alive with activity but most of the time the pace is pleasantly slow, the dogs friendly, and good food close at hand.
We had a successful park work day on May 4. 8 hard working volunteers showed up to pull and cut weeds, trim the paths and clean out Tucker’s corner. Lunch was provided by Melinda Bell. Thanks to everyone.
