Public Park to be Built
September 12, 1929

At a public meeting of the citizens of Susanville Monday night in regard to the proposed city park, a gift of the land to the city was made by Frank P. Cady, who purchased ten acres from M.O. Folsom for $3500 and about an acre from M.R. Arnold for $1000. The Memorial Hall is about the center of the tract on Main street and the piece purchased from Arnold includes Fort Defiance, the first building built in Lassen County.

All local organizations are behind the plans and the ice skating rink will be ready for cold weather. It is planned to have the natatorium ready for next summer.

Mr. Cady has been a resident of Susanville for many years, has held public offices and took part in many thrilling incidents in the growth of the county. He has always been public spirited as was his wife, the late Rilla P. Cady. He owned and operated the local water company for many years only recently selling out to the Foshay company. He is president of the local Rotary Club.
