Val Verde Community Regional Park
In 1937, Mr. Harry M. Waterman donated 50 acres to the County for the creation of a park. Now, Val Verde Park is a 58-acre community regional facility in a verdant rural setting, nestled among mature oak trees. During the 1950’s, affluent African-Americans found respite from the city by traveling to this area for recreational activities. The park quickly became a community gathering place and was home to the annual Coronation Ball and the Green Valley Festival Parade. Today, the park serves as a cultural and recreational focal point for the Val Verde community.
