For 50 years, Pendleton King Park has been the center of a unique partnership between the City of Augusta and the Trustees of the Will of Henry Barclay King, which designates that the 64-acre bird sanctuary shall remain a park in perpetuity in memory of his son, John Pendleton King. A Trustee in Augusta has recently been proposed selling the Park to the City for the approximate sum of $1 million. While the city did not accept the offer, the trustee has since found a developer who has plans drawn up to bulldoze the entire Park and create a housing development. Please help to support Pendleton Kin Park Foundation in their efforts to Save Our Park!
