JH Land Trust to Complete Rendezvous Park for Community

We are thrilled to announce that The LOR Foundation has awarded a grant of $1.7 million to The Jackson Hole Land Trust (JHLT) to realize the vision established for Rendezvous Park by and for the community!

The LOR Foundation and JHLT partnered in 2011 to purchase our 41-acre property which is located to the north and west of the Highway 22 Bridge over the Snake River and includes the Wilson boat launch, a popular community access point for boating, angling, swimming, and pedestrian paths along the levee. Over the past five years, R Park has been reclaimed from a private commercial gravel pit into a public-access natural park visited by over 5,000 people a year.

The grant money will allow JHLT to complete the final stages of R Park’s transformation as originally envisioned by the community. New amenities will provide visitors with a better park experience including a welcome pavilion, connected pathways and bridges, permanent restroom facilities, trail signage, a picnic shelter, bike racks, benches and additional landscaping and reclamation. 
Construction will be completed in three phases over the next 24 months and we will remain open to the public.
