“Every dollar we raise for the park goes back into the park,” Knudson said. “Parks down in Sacramento, San Francisco and Marin County have consulted us trying to see what we did to survive. But it takes a lot of time. People won’t, or can’t, work for free, so that’s why our project has happened when others haven’t.”
