1960’s

In the fall of 1966 the GCW decided it was time to make a significant contribution to the city in the form of a small park.  Once again the source of funds was an Open House tour. The hostesses were Mrs. Lammot du Pont Copeland, Mrs. George Bissell, Jr., Mrs. Lewis du Pont, Mrs. Glasgow Reynolds, Mrs. Nicholas R. du Pont, Mrs. David Stockwell, plus Mr. Henry F. du Pont and Mr. H. Rodney Sharp.  The tour was sold out and produced almost $26,000 in funding.
