Feeney Park Has New Signs

Murphys, CA...Feeney Park, the heavily used recreation area adjacent to Albert Michelson Elementary School in Murphys, has a new entrance sign thanks to a gift from Nellie Redpath, Wrangler Barnum, and Becky Reagan and their human companions. (The three canines can be seen most mornings chasing balls and frolicking with each other in the park.)

“We know Edna Feeney would be pleased,” says Nellie. “She is the very nice lady who made the park possible.”

The sign is in keeping with a design created by the Murphys Community Club to encourage signage uniformity in the historic gold rush town.

Feeney Park, located along State Highway 4 at the entrance to Murphys, serves thousands of youth and adult athletes from throughout Calaveras County. It is the home field for the Ebbetts Pass Little League and Ebbetts Pass Youth Soccer League. It is also the site of the Rites of Passage home baseball games.

In addition, Feeney Park offers unique opportunities for casual recreation with its disc golf course, skate park, walking trails, picnic areas, and amphitheater.

This park is co-operated with Vallecito School District and is also cleaned up by government agency personnel and prisoner no, it is not run by "all volunteers".

Feeney Park benefits from your tax dollars in so many different ways, as well as from volunteers.

    The Feeney Park committee also obtains grant money that is available for parks, and grant money is tax money. That is the reason that Feeney Park was transferred to the Feeney Park Committee by the Ebbetts Pass Veteran's Memorial District, which was the owner of the park; the Feeney Park committee was not eligible for the grant funds unless they either owned the property or had a very long term lease on it. And they also expect groups that use the park, such as the Little League, to raise large sums of money for improvements to the park such as the recent upgraded watering system.

        it was built but it's on school property so it is probably "never ok" to use it, or will cost a fortune to lease.

      so the sign is wrong?

      Someone needs to post a sign that isn't making up lies about this park.

      so now we know this park is not run off of volunteer support only.

      Change the sign to reflect our tax dollars support this park? Why hide the truth? Who is afraid of the good things that come out of a government funded by you and me?

Would be nice if an official dog park could somehow be incorporated into the Feeney Park area!!

I am pretty sure that the sign they removed was an Eagle Scout project of just a few years ago.

This is much better & most importantly it reflects that the Ebbetts Pass Veterans Memorial District doesn't contribute to it ... Much nicer looking too

    and it neglects to mention the park is funded by taxes. It is a bad sign.

      The park upkeep is indeed funded but those who work there are volunteers. My Aunt Edna donated the land since Murphy's did not have a proper park for the children and I am saddened to see all the petty comments on here whether it is funded or not. Nothing is free.

Come on, a freakin' dog park? That park already has some dumb skateboard ramps and a hippy freesbee throwing area- what a waste. Even those soccer fields are kinda silly. All that area should be open to muddin' and a shooting range. Babys and grannys go to the park, not a bunch a sissys.
