CLALLAM: Volunteers propel midsummer opening for newest park


Clallam County has set midsummer as a target for opening a new park at Robin Hill Farm east of Port Angeles.

But if volunteer efforts remain strong, the park could open ahead of schedule, said Kathe Smith, who was recently hired as a county volunteer organizer.

“The target is July 4, but if we keep getting this kind of volunteer effort, we might be looking at the end of June,”‘ Smith said.

In 1997 Robert McCool sold Robin Hill Farm, a property appraised at $2.4 million, to the county for $1 million. The land is located between Port Angeles and Sequim off Vautier Road in the Agnew area.
