At the dedication, placques of appreciation were given out to the Ray and Irene Burden family for their donation of all of the fabulous trees for the park, including a grove of magnolias that will become a small meditation garden in memory of Irene Burden who hybridized magnolias; a placque to Herman Bergman of Kiwanis who singlehandedly kept the new trees alive over the hot summer by faithfully watering them every week; a placque thanking the Kiwanis Club for help and support; a placque recognizing the MOMS club for their fundraising and support; and placques recognizing the efforts of the Street Department crew, Park Department crew, and park planner Matilda Deas.
