Town of Dillon approves pocket park

SUMMIT COUNTY – The town of Dillon gave preliminary approval to a pocket park at the town council meeting Tuesday. The park would focus on the history of the town and include a map of the old town of Dillon, information about the old ski jump area at Lake Hill and a bronze statue of John Bailey, the first mayor of the new town of Dillon, among other attractions.

The proposal for the park, which would be located south of the amphitheater, has been three years in the making. Council members said the park would create an educational and safe environment for both locals and tourists. Some said it would also help clear up certain persistent myths about the town, particularly about the old town’s buildings.

“A lot of people think the old buildings are still down there, and that’s just not the truth,” Councilmember Judee Cathrall said.
