Sparkie is visiting a 40-acre park just south of the Santa Maria Public Airport that is filled with oak trees and campsites created through Eagle Scout projects. It has a large barbecue area and enough picnic tables to accommodate up to 900 people. There’s a pavilion, a softball field and a children’s playground.
There is also the Troop 91 Scout Hut, Clarence Donati’s Hideaway and the Owl’s Nest.
James “Jim” May, who died in 2007, was the driving force behind getting this park established. It was built with volunteer labor, donated equipment and materials and other donations.
