Community Parks


Dawson Park

Park History

Located in the Rope Rider Neighborhood, Dawson Park is named in honor of James Dawson, a land planner, architect and environmentalist who has worked in the design and conception of Suncadia continuously since 1996 when planning for the community began in earnest. Jim's contributions to Suncadia are immeasurable. His ideas, integrity and passion have been essential to the creation of this high quality resort community which is now a source of pride for our owners, guests and citizens of our neighboring towns and the entire state. Suncadia is grateful for all of Jim's contributions past, present and future. No single person has made a more comprehensive impact to Suncadia, better understood the beauty of the place, more passionately engaged the question of what it could and should be, created more value, or made more friends. So given his extraordinary contribution and passion, the largest of Suncadia's park was named in honor of our friend Jim Dawson.

Park History

For more than 25 years (1918 to 1943), the Maple Dairy, operated by Battista Venera and his family, served the communities of Roslyn, Ronald, South Cle Elum and Cle Elum. From a beginning of only 20 milk cows, he built his herd to 90. Each summer, after the morning milking, the cows were herded out to open rangeland behind his farm, which is where this area in Suncadia stands today.
