Town Completes Purchase of First Part of Woodland Lake Park
Submitted by Town Council Member Lynn Krigbaum

After many years of working to raise awareness and money to acquire part of Woodland Lake Park, we finally had papers signed by Mayor Stephanie Irwin to transfer ownership of 107+ acres from the U.S. Forest Service to the Town of Pinetop-Lakeside. As of last Friday, the Town now owns the area known as Woodland Lake Park. The Town was able to secure a $1,635,000 donation from The Salter Foundation that made the purchase possible. We extend our heartfelt thanks to the Salters for their generosity, as well as to the countless other donations, large and small, we received during the fundraising campaign. This began as a grass-roots campaign and we are grateful to every donor who supported the cause. Save Our Park will continue to raise funds with the goal of purchasing the next targeted parcel of land known as the Walnut Creek Riparian area from the Forest Service. Save Our Park, which worked tirelessly for many years to bring this purchase to fruition, is grateful to TRACKS members for the past 13 years of support for the fundraiser, Walk for the Woods. TRACKS volunteers have been vital in leading hikes, walks and bike rides, which made possible the hiring of the fundraising group that helped secure funding for the park purchase. The Town also extends its thanks to Rep. Tom O'Halleran for his efforts to make possible the initial purchase.
