Rebuilding the Feeney Park Dream

Murphys, CA...Twenty years ago, Feeney Park in Murphys began as a vision to serve the community, giving families a place to relax, enjoy sports and celebrate the arts. Dubbed “The Field of Dreams,” the park united the community. With hard work, donations and dedication, they created a green space that has grown into a multi-use park, with several playing fields, including the only regulation-size Junior division Little League field on the Highway 4 corridor, a skate park, a disk golf course, and a walking trail. Feeney Park is an irreplaceable treasure along the Upper Highway 4 corridor.






But the park has reached a point of serious financial and infrastructural need, and the continued operation of the park is not guaranteed.

To fill a serious gap in funding, the Foundation has embarked on a fundraising campaign called Rebuild the Dream to ensure the future of this well-loved community space.

Part of the park’s needs are simply due to age; the park still uses the original accessories and infrastructure. Recently a groundsman from Greenhorn Creek golf course assessed the park and identified critical flaws needing immediate attention. The park needs a new sprinkler timer and new sprinkler heads, a new PVC pipe infrastructure, and de-thatching equipment to remove the tangle of old grass that builds up on the fields and impedes moisture penetration. The fields need to be dragged, sanded, soiled, and reseeded.

In addition, last year’s storms flooded the Snack Shack which led to mold. They need to install gutters, remove and replace drywall inside, and repaint. Additionally, they need to replace two exterior doors to help keep the weather out and prevent vandalism.

“Feeney Park has been struggling financially for the last decade,” said Susan Lyneis, Treasurer of the Feeney Park Foundation. “We’ve been doing a lot with very little for far too long. The Park needs ongoing maintenance to continue to operate safely. We need to secure consistent and reliable funding to stay afloat and to continue to serve the community.”

The park is a testament to what a community can build. It receives no financial assistance from the county, state, or any other public agency. Wendi Bell, current Foundation president added “When the area desperately needed a place to play, the dream came true. Countless volunteers gave time, money and sweat to create Feeney Park. It is currently, however, lacking in endowment support. Hard decisions face Feeney Park in the near future and it’s up to all of us to step up.”

The Feeney Park website has been updated and offers many ways to securely donate directly to the Park. Lyneis hopes that people will use the monthly donation option to make budgeting easier. “That’s something we can count on,” she said. In-kind gifts and volunteers are greatly sought as well. You can explore ways to support Feeney Park at their website:

This park looks like a piece of sh*t! Why hasn't it been maintained after all these years? What has happened to the donations given to help support this park? Now you are asking the public to donate again. Good luck with that!

        For every act of fellatio I perform after dark at Feeney Park, I pledge to donate $20 to the Save The Park fund.
        I have calculated that within 2 months, I will have donated enough money to fund the parks up grade AND maintenance for the next 10 years.
        So just remember, every load you drop will be helping secure services at the park, now and into the future.

    This place exists because of donations. From the land itself, to the maintenance.
    Negative commentary comes from someone that doesn't understand the meaning of a community park.
    It's not funded by the county, the state, or the feds.
    Grants can be obtained, but then can only be used for specific projects.
    This park only exists because of thankless volunteers.
    Don't be a hater.

          Yes. He was being anally violated by a homeless man when police intervened. He declined to press charges. Asked if the homeless guy could finish before being arrested.

Not much of a surprise. The younger generations are all about inclusion, diversity, and woke cancel culture BS. The liberal agenda plaguing the big cities has finally spilled into our small towns, and it shows. The parks here will eventually belong to homeless druggies. Welcome to the world of Democrats !

        Howzabout James "the smurf" Comer and his investigation into the Biden Family criminal enterprise??
        HAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHA

        He ain't got sh-it. Now Hunter wants to testify PUBLICLY and the Midget says no. All smoke and mirrors folks, smoke and mirrors.

        HEY COMER, PUT UP OR SHUT UP!!

        He doesn't have jack. Not one single shred of evidence that can show misdoings by Hunter or Joe. Sure Hunter used his last name to further his dealings, but HELLO, ever hear of Don Jr., Ivanka, or Inbred Eric???

        Comer and his cronies, led by the stellar George Santos of NY, are just full of it. At least Dems had evidence when going after Trump.

        Can you imagine any Repub saying he would testify publicly?? Well thats what Hunter wants to do, but Comer says no. That speaks volumes.

            Wrong Moron!! Hunter wants to go public so he can show what a sham Comer and his minions are. All bluster, bombast, smoke, mirrors, but not one shred of evidence. If he has ANY it would be plastered all over Hannity, Newsmax, everywhere.
            As it is he ain't got jack.
            Wake up you idiot. Look at the facts. Comer has a big fat nothing burger.
            I don't like Hunter, or his hijinks, but going after him is a waste of time. Kind of like Eric Trump. A loser, a waste of time.
