Park History

Dedicated in 2009, the park was constructed through a partnership between the City of Auburn, Tucci & Sons, and Eagle Scout projects from Scout Troops #323, #401, and #510. It is named in honor of Dorothy Marion Bothell who devoted her life to her family, the family business and civic duty. Appointed in 1950, Bothell served as Auburn’s first female council member and was also active on the Cemetery Board, served the Red Cross, organized the first chapter of the Women’s Business and Professional Club, and was a member of many other local and regional service clubs.
