YRPA has big plans for John H. Dover Memorial Park. One section of the park is currently open to the public, with a trailhead at 2531 Mary Street. John H. Dover was the original homesteader on the property and grandfather of Jim Sindelar. Jim’s vision was that the land be used for park space rather than become another subdivision. Two additional sections, one purchased from the Jim and Virginia Sindelar family and the other a donation from the same, are currently in the planning stages for future public access and use. Funding, perceived need, and external factors will shape the final design.
