The park will be known as Monch Farm Park, reflecting its former use as part of the Monch family farm. After the owner, Gertrude Roat of the Monch family, had put the property on the market, there was some interest from housing developers, but the county agreed to purchase the land on a fee simple basis for $4.3 million.
There will a public planning process, including community meetings, to explore uses and facilities for the park. Nothing has been scheduled yet.
