I am a Boy Scout who is working on my Eagle Scout project.
My project is here at Enumclaw’s Martin Johnson park at 3000 Harding St. There is a play structure at the park but no seating. My goal is to add a concrete pad with bench seating and a trash receptacle. I thought maybe there might be family or friends of Martin Johnson who would like to provide the bench and receptacle as a memorial to the person the park is named after.
Unfortunately, I haven’t been able to confirm how the land came to be a park named Martin Johnson park. The Enumclaw Plateau Historical Society Museum was able to help me locate a past resident named Martin T. Johnson who passed away in 1980 and had been a member of the Kiwanis Club and maybe involved with FFA but I am not sure if this is the same person.
I was hoping if anyone had any information on the park or Mr. Johnson they could let me know. Also, if there are any family or friends who may be interested in donating items for the park or a memorial bench for a loved one please contact me at firstname.lastname@example.org or (253) 241-8112.
