Park preservation

Dear Editor:

Pioneer Park has received a preservation honor award from the city’s Historic Preservation Commission, thanks to the hard work and dedication of the following people: Darryl Queen of Glenwood Door and Cabinet Shop, Glenwood Springs: restoration and rebuilding of the gazebo; Julia Marshall, Susan Chism of Mt. Daly Ent., Landscape Design, Carbondale: design of gardens and research into use of Victorian preferences; Walt Burger: Treeline Landscape, Carbondale: planting of gardens and laying flagstone paths; Franz Froelicher of Blue Heron Forge, Carbondale: restoration of iron fence; Damon Crocker of Hudson Ent., Carbondale: painting gazebo and fence.

This project was especially challenging because its historic nature had to be researched and preserved as closely as feasible and none of it would have been possible without the work of Les Holst who raised the money to buy the land for a park to give to the city.
