Lucy V. Ryan Park

In 1926, the Ryan family donated this site for a public park honoring their mother, Lucy V. Ryan. The house on the site was used as the city’s library until the 1970s and then a house museum. An renovation planned for 2023 found the house had major structural issues and was beyond repair. Through 2024, the City will work with the Ryan family and community to further develop the park without the house, as was intended nearly 100 years ago to honor Lucy’s love of horticulture.
Amenities: grassy areas, gardens, shade trees, benches, water fountain
Park’s History: The site was the original Kincaid cabin and donation land claim. George Ryan bought and enlarged the house. The Ryan grew hops, rhubarb and other crops in what used to be the farm around the house.  The family donated the house and grounds to Sumner in 1926.
