Been meaning to write about this for some time. About one year to be exact. A new park! Ok, we write about parks all the time, but this is less about what it is and more about how it came to be.
Imagination Park in the town of San Anselmo, CA was an old furniture store once owned by George Star Wars Lucas and then handed over to the town to be demolished. Then came the trees, grass, paths, and a pretty cool fountain with Yoda and Indiana Jones. I’m sure there was a lot of behind the scenes rhetoric, but why let the details spoil a good thing.
Their was a building and now there’s not. Period. I like that. Although I’m not a big fan of its name ( “Yoda Jones” would have been my choice) I do like to imagine every town tearing down buildings to make way for little parks.
Here’s a link to a jenky site about the park: Imagination Park
