6 I The Lovell Chronicle I August 1, 2013 PATTI CARPENTER A special park called "My Corner of Heaven" was created on private property on Main Street in Cowley in memory of Evelyn King for community members to freely enjoy. Grandma's corner provides a piece of heaven for guests BY PATTI CARPENTER == er items like an old wheel- There's nothing like a good book and a comfort- able place to read it, and that's exactly what Collin and Pat Stevens, with a lit- tle help from friends Mac and Edie Crosby, created on Main Street in Cowley this spring. When Collin's moth- er, Evelyn King, died five years ago, Collin decided he wanted to use the property she lived on to create some- thing special in her memo- ry. To that end, he created a private park and recently added a free lending library station. "She used to call it her corner of heaven," said wife Pat. "So we are call- ing it Grandma's Corner of Heaven." The Stevenses razed the old house that was on the property and replaced it with a beautiful gazebo. A table and chairs under the gazebo provide a place for residents to read, visit with friends, picnic or just pause for a quiet moment. The space also includes a near- by dog gazebo, which pro- vides a safe place for pets to rest, as well. A fire pit made by Rocky Mountain High School FFA students was recently add- ed, and there are plans in the works for benches or chairs to be placed near the fire pit area. The latest addition to the little park is a "Little Free Library" station built PATTI CARPENTER A "Little Free Library" station was placed in a private park dedicated to Evelyn King. Residents are invited to take a book and return a different one whenever they feel like reading something new. by Mac Crosby to house free reading materials on the property. Pat saw the idea for the library in Pa- rade Magazine and thought it was a perfect complement to the park. The station pro- vides books for visitors to take and read for free. Par- ticipants are encouraged to replace the book they take with one of their own to keep the collection rotating with new material for the community to read. Cur- rently, the library contains books for both children and adults, but Pat said she hopes that there will be a separate station for chil- dren's books someday. Crosby made the sta- tion to look like a little white house and fashioned a door for the station out of an old window from King's house. The door keeps the books, which are housed inside on shelves, out of the elements, yet very visible to those browsing the se- lection in search of a good read. It-also provides a bit of nostalgia along with oth- barrow owned by Collin's father and an old cream- er used by Pat's mother that have been made into planters. "This was a labor of love between the Crosbys and us," said Pat. Although the land is privately owned, Pat said that she and her husband Collin hope that residents and visitors to Cowley will enjoy sitting under the old growth trees and admir- ing the beautiful flowers planted by King and oth- er family members on the property. According to family members, King loved to read, especially her local newspaper. She was also a contributing writer to the Lovell Chronicle and wrote articles for the Cowley News for many years. "We decided what bet- ter way to honor her than to provide a nice place to read and books for people to share and read," said Pat. "We truly hope others will enjoy this property as much as we do."
