Community help sought in building Nylander Park

CLEARLAKE OAKS – Want to help make a lasting impression on Clearlake Oaks? If so, officials are inviting community members to take a hand in building the town's new Nylander Park along Highway 20.


Supervisor Denise Rushing reported that many Clearlake Oaks residents have been devoting time and energy to help county officials to design Nylander Park. Rushing said the park will be a highly visible stop for visitors to the Oaks, which she said is becoming known as the “Gateway to Clear Lake.”


Now, officials are asking for the community's help to get the park properly outfitted.


Clearlake Oaks residents Holly Harris and Chuck Lamb, who have been involved in the Nylander Park effort, are helping the county's Public Services Department solicit park accessories, equipment and donations for the park.


Harris and Lamb said donations may be made anonymously, in the donor's name or in memory of someone else.


Nylander Park eventually will have a small playground, picnic tables, barbecue grills, benches, a visitor information gazebo, restrooms, rock wall and parking, which Harris and Lamb reported will become a reality with the community's help.


To complete the park, Harris and Lamb reported that the following items are needed:


  • Acorn street lights – eight needed at $2,000 each.

  • Metal picnic tables with benches – seven needed at $2,700 each.

  • Six-foot park benches – 12 needed at $650 each.

  • Trash receptacles – six needed at $400 each.

  • Barbecue grills – seven needed at $300 each.

  • Drinking fountains – two needed at $3,000 each.

  • Bollard ground lights – eight needed at $1,000 each.

  • Oak trees – 10 feet at $180 each; 20 feet at $500 each; larger at $1,000 each.

  • Engraved 5 x 8-inch plaques are available at an additional $40.


Donations received to date include one bench, $3,500 in mature oak trees and $5,000 toward the rock wall, according to Harris and Lamb.


For those wanting to help, checks can be made out to "County of Lake" with Nylander Park in the memo line, according to Harris; be sure to specify if this is a general donation, or if you wish to purchase a specific item listed above.


Donations should be mailed to Lake County Department of Public Services, 333 Second St., Lakeport, CA 95453; Attn: Nylander Park Donation.
