This property was donated to the city by Mr. and Mrs. Kingsley D. Bundy and their daughter and son-in-law, Mr. and Mrs. Fred Van Raden. Bundy, a mailman of 41 years, had dreamed of one day giving the land so that others could enjoy this forest along Johnson Creek.  Ecological enhancement of Kingsley D Bundy Park provides cleaner air for community members and cleaner water in Johnson Creek, improving salmon and lamprey habitat.

Please RSVP so we know how many to expect.
