The City of Eureka is excited to announce the upcoming establishment of the Grace Marton Memorial Park. This new park will be located on the grass lawn area in front of the Sacco Amphitheater and is made possible due to a generous donation by Lance Hardie and Grace Marton.
Grace and Lance made this donation to honor the many lunches they enjoyed on the waterfront together and memorialize their fondness for this area. They wished to improve this location for the community’s benefit by establishing a park and gardens. Since receiving the bequest, the City of Eureka has begun the development of a waterfront-themed playground featuring a reproduced Merchant Ship handmade by Eric Hollenbeck of Blue Ox Millworks. Working with the Wildling Design Studio, a thoughtful cohesive park plan is underway. The public’s input is needed to develop this park design into a shared community vision.
Waterfront Trail improvements and realignment are planned as part of this park project. A 50% match grant is being pursued to double the park and trail budget. This opportunity is provided by the Land and Water Conservation Fund and the application is due June 1st, 2023. The grant award will be announced in September 2023.Continue reading The NEW Grace Marton Memorial Park
