Ione Train Depot Park Update

The restoration efforts on the old Ione Train depot are moving forward.  A new sign at the corner of the W. Marlette and Mill Streets has been installed with a message of “Future Home of the Ione Train Depot Park.”  Seed money for the park was raised last year at the BIG RED BARN fundraising event.  Since then, grading and clean up have been completed and plans are underway for a new roof.  The Rotary Club of Ione recently donated material and labor for the installation of security lighting at the park.  The City of Ione is actively working on obtaining grant funding, and City Park funding to continue the restoration of the depot, and eventual build out of the park at the site.  This will be a historic site for community gatherings and residential use.
