History

The park is named in honor of longtime neighborhood residents Dick and Opal Hazeltine. Dick is considered by many as a "founder" of the Brentwood-Darlington neighborhood. For several decades, he has been at the forefront of many neighborhood improvement initiatives, including the building of the community center, establishing the neighborhood watch program, and organizing neighborhood clean-ups. His tireless efforts resulted in the development of the Nehalem property into a neighborhood park.
