Sheltering Memories - Building Dreams

Join us as we enjoy and support the new Wall Family Shelter! We can even help you find a place to put your name and sentiments, to show your support for posterity.

Let’s make this a place that speaks for us even when we aren’t there -- or at least until the next time when the ice is like glass, the night as deep as forever, and glittering stars call to us to

circle around again,

share first skates with little ones,

just starting their dreams,

and fulfilling ours, in the shelter of each other.

  • This park could be great if it received a little more TLC: beach was absolutely covered in seaweed and duck poop. A beautiful neighborhood all the same! Very good spot for fishing as well
