The park is named for Wendy Moore. Wendy was an artist, an athlete, a teacher, a champion, a sister and a friend. Her experiences took her to a silversmith apprenticeship in Nepal, to a more conventional summer of study in Provence, to teaching in Oregon, and eventually to the film industry and studying and exhibiting her art in Los Angeles. It is impossible to sum up a person in a paragraph or even a book, but Wendy had a tremendous love of life. Her legacy is her art, and the inspiration she left behind. Her severe brain injury inspired a company named Team Wendy, which is devoted to making safer multi-impact helmets and foam inserts. Her artwork is still touring and seen from time to time at various shows. She was an avid skier and captain of the first Hawken girls swim team to win the state championship. The park commemorates her eye for beauty, her love of athletics and her unquenchable zest for life.
