Natural History: Meadowbale's gulch area passed through several owners before it became a park. The first person to homestead the site was John Lund in 1878. The site was eventually acquired by Meadowdale Terrace. The well tended private park featured a clubhouse, manicured lawns, an Olympic-size swimming pool with bathhouses, and a fish hatchery. The country club closed in the 1960's.
