Actor Dennis Weaver's family is donating a 60 acre park to the town of Ridgway, Colorado.
The park, located north of Ridgway on the west side of US Hwy. 550, will be separated from a 175-acre tract purchased by Dennis Weaver in 1988. In addition to conservation benefits, the park will offer world-class fly-fishing and new scenic hiking and bicycling trails.
The remaining 115 acres of the tract will become a low-density “green” housing development called RiverSage. The 19 planned two-acre home sites have been strategically clustered in areas of minimal visual and wildlife impact, away from the river corridor and riparian areas that will be permanently protected from any future development.
