Turner Park for Kids at the Jamison Center

Turner Park was built for the children staying at the Jamison
Center. It is a four acre park and includes a playground area and
volleyball court, covered area for picnics/parties, and lots of

grass for the kids to run and play. The park was built as a Kiwa
nis Division 33 project, and Westchester Kiwanis, Charter

member, Jim “Pop” Turner was instrumental in the actual
building of the park along with ensuring that Westchester
Kiwanis would provide equipment and ongoing maintenance of
the park since 1986. Every two weeks the Club mows, edges,
weed-whacks, and cuts the grass keeping the area looking good
for those deserving kids. In 2001, the park was named in Jim
Turner’s honor by the County Board of Supervisors, just two
years before his passing.
