Nancy and Gary Harrington are Pleasanton jewels! They never cease to amaze me with their generosity and community spirit. Our beloved hometown is so much better because of their many projects. Thank you Gary and Nancy!

We used to have our union picnic here but it was too difficult to keep the public from taking our food.You may get some free labor and or material if you reach out to local union trades. We would love to return here to have our picnics.

I’m happy we have the Harrington’s to donate money to our community. Maybe this will get EBRPD and other funding sources to maintain the Shadow Cliffs Open spaces. There are fish hooks and lines along the paths of the ponds and lakes enough to get entangled in, as well as tons of cigarette butts, some old clothing, and garbage visible in the shallows. We have made so many calls but EBRPD has no volunteer clean up days and I’m sad to say Ms Wieskamp was not responsive. I’d like to think of what could be accomplished along with the educational pavilion. Maybe an exhibit about cleaning up our urban waterways and wildlife areas.

Great, the nature pavilion that can focus on the very unnatural quarry filled with run-off and garbage. There is nothing natural about SC. Maybe the Harringtons could have donated money to keep the much loved waterslides at SC. Kids will be so happy to know they traded their summer fun for a pavilion where a bunch of crusty old bird watchers can hang out!

I'm sure that all of the kids that lined up for the water slides will now form a long line waiting to read the signs in the interpretive displays. No, wait, they'll be spending their money in Dublin.

Let's hope there will some discussion about picking and properly disposing of dog wastes when at this park. A family of 3 fox pups died of parvo 2 years ago because of this.
