Memorial Stone for Dick and Opal Hazeltine

Brentwood-Darlington Neighborhood Association has placed a memorial stone in Hazeltine Park, commemorating Opal’s Garden and honoring Dick and Opal Hazeltine.  The Hazeltine’s spent decades volunteering in the neighborhood and are responsible for many of the community spaces we enjoy today.  We encourage everyone to visit Hazeltine Park and spend a moment at Opal’s Garden, climb the logs in the sustainable nature patch, and enjoy the space the neighborhood built together.

Thank you to local business Affordable Family Memorials for creating and placing this beautiful stone.  Thank you to the 2019-20 BDNA Board for approving funding for this stone.
