Willows Memorial Park

The Glenn County Facilities Department developed a successful application in an extremely competitive grant program. The support of the Board of Supervisors and County Administrative Officer made the award of funding possible. The application focused on three parks located in Glenn County which include, Willows Memorial Park, Orland Memorial Park and Walker Creek Park. Below is a description of improvements at both Orland and Willows Memorial Parks:

Orland Memorial Park- Improvements will include the addition of a veteran’s memorial monument, concrete pathways, picnic tables, benches, and waste/recycle containers. All of the improvements will be in accordance with the Americans with Disabilities Act (ADA), which will allow access to amenities to those with disabilities. A new pathway off the south sidewalk will lead to the existing memorial cannon which will be accented with dry-scaping. A new large veteran’s memorial monument will be placed in the area of the rose garden and be bordered by decorative fencing. The existing insignias in the rose garden will be placed in a new stone monument to better accent the memorial. New plants and trees have been planted for water reduction, improved shade and beautification.

Willows Memorial Park- Improvements will include the addition of a large playground, concrete pathways, picnic tables, benches and waste/recycle containers. All of the improvements will be in accordance with the Americans with Disabilities Act (ADA), which will allow access to amenities to those with disabilities. The new path will meander through the park connecting the picnic tables, benches and new playground. Paths will be illuminated by solar lighting and trees and dry-scaping will accent the edges. The new playground will sit upon decorative concrete and will be bordered with architectural fencing which will be adorned with a new memorial sign. New plants and trees have been planted for water reduction, improved shade and beautification.
