Eller Park Dedication Draws Big Crowd

Eller Park Menifee CAAbout a couple hundred people attended the Eller Park Dedication ceremony this morning in Menifee. Valley Wide Parks and Recreation's newest park, which was named after the Eller Family, longtime stalwarts in the Romoland area since the 1940s, was officially unveiled to the public.

Eller Park is located in the Romoland area of Menifee, off of Hwy 74 and Antelope Rd, right next to Romoland Elementary School.

Distinguished persons from throughout the area were on hand, including Riverside County supervisors Marion Ashley and Jeff Stone, Menifee City Councilmembers Darcy Kuenzi and John Denver, as well as others from various cities, school boards, and even the the water district.

Marion Ashley, who grew up in Romoland, described to the audience what Romoland was like decades ago. "Right here, where this park now stands, was the original community center of Romoland", he spoke pointing his finger behind him at the park's baseball field. "This is where the bank was, this is where everybody came to see each other."

Construction on the 5-acre park started in June 2009, at a cost of $2.2 million. It features a baseball diamond with lights, basketball courts, jogging paths, a tot lot, restrooms and a gazebo. It's also only the second park in the City of Menifee to boast its own snack bar.
