Colleen Parkinson sent us the great pix! "These photographs were found among my aunt Dorothy Parkinson's memorabilia. I hope you can use them. The Parkinson family were pioneers in Washington Township, later called Broderick (as you know)."
The lower photo identifies her ancestors in the group photo. According to the timeline posted by the San Pedro Association "In 1861- The Monument Bend School opened, five miles upriver from Washington. There was severe flooding this year, with water over eight feet deep in much of the town."

The landscapers were hard at work today at the new Joseph (Joey) Lopes Neighborhood Park on Sycamore Avenue in West Sacramento. The crew was busy digging and planting "millions" of beautiful drought tolerant shrubs, plants and trees and said they expect to lay the bark tomorrow. The huge park design is really quite fabulous with an art installation yet to come by nationally known artist Michael Clapper of Denver, Colorado. I'm sure it would please our old friend Joey Lopes!

The new playground structure at located at 2950 Linden Road is now complete and it looks great! The park remodel was designed by Miracle Play Systems and was partially funded with donations raised by Bridgeway Play, a citizens group in West Sacramento.

River City High School relocated in 2009 to the beautiful new campus located on Jefferson Boulevard and Linden Avenue. Seems such a shame that the City of West Sacramento and Washington Unified School district can't get together to turn these fields into a sports complex/baseball park to benefit the kids in our City.
