The Name Behind the Park

The community park got its name after a longtime Fremont resident, Lila Bringhurst, who was on the forefront for preserving the local heritage and history of Fremont including Mission San Jose, Saint Joseph Parish rectory and Rancho Higuera Adobe. Lila also served on the City's Recreation Commission from January 2014 up until her passing. 

Lila commemorated Fremont's history by personally funding Mario Chiodo, a famous sculptor, to construct a large bas-relief train to depict a 1907 train that traveled through Niles Canyon in front of the Niles Station Apartments on the intersection of Mowry Avenue and Mission Boulevard. Lila passed away on May 7, 2016, but her lifetime of preservation efforts will be enjoyed by future generations to come.
