Sinton Family Donates Land To County for Park Linkage

Twenty-eight acres of land along Fountain Creek, a part of the farm land acquired by Herbert G. Sinton in 1928, was given by the Sinton family to the El Paso County Park and Recreation District Friday.

The strip of land, more than one mile long, is destined to become a link in the county's linear park system and that of the city of Colorado Springs. This system will also be connected with one stretching northward along the backbone of the Rocky Mountains and into Canada.

Presentation of the deed was carried out in ceremonies held on the land itself, near where Colorado Highway 83, or Academy Boulevard, crosses the strip at about the midway point.

James H. Sinton and Marietta Sinton Gray, both of Colorado Springs, presented the deed, transported to the site in an old milk wagon once used for deliveries by the Sinton family dairy, to the chairman of the park district, Frank Conway.

Accepting for the park district, Conway said it had been public minded citizens like the Sintons and Gen. William J. Palmer that had made the Colorado Springs area such a beautiful place to live. He praised the Sintons for their concern with the environment of the region.

Other members of the Sinton family present for the ceremony were Wilbur Sinton, Arthur Sinton and Dr. Eleanor Sinton.

Among park board members present, in addition to Conway, were vice chairman Robert K. Hall, who was chairman of the park district through its formative months, Julian Rawls, Robert Louden and Mrs. Effa Mae Marker.

Commissionere Stan Johnson represented the county commissioners.

The linear park system of which the Sinton land becomes a part will be used for foot trails, bridle paths and open space links between other parks along the Front Range and into the mountains.

The Sinton family's history in the Colorado Springs area goes back to 1880 when two brothers, George H. and Melvin H. Sinton started a small dairy at what is now the intersection of Willamette and Corona Streets. Their dairy herd eventually grew to more than 800 milk cows.

In 1928, the family acquired land south of the city that formerly was the Bates and Hassler Ranch, It was a part of this land that was given the park system Friday.
