Something Wonderful is Happening in Warner
Jim Mitchell

The Jim Mitchell Community Park

opened to the public on 10/10/10 at 10:10 am. A Park inspired and initiated by Jim Mitchell to give back to a town he so loved. In October of 2013 the MainStreet Warner Stage, a 13th century post-and-beam barn design opened in the amphitheater behind the bookstore. A stage designed and built by local carpenters, volunteers, with funds raised from the community. It is run on four solar panels, installed by MainStreet BookEnds, and the park is irrigated by a stored rainwater system installed by Greenleaf Irrigation. Current fundraising efforts are focused on creating a permanent sound and lighting system, and an “edible landscape” garden.

Built by this community, for all of the community, reflecting our talents and
perseverance; built with our hands, our hearts and our minds.
This stage stands as a testament to the grace and beauty among us,
and the overwhelming sense of gratitude that we share to be a part of this town.
May it stand for our future generations, free to all, to reflect and restore us.
May this masterpiece of human skill and art be our monument to the future, and always remind us that our dreams begin and are fulfilled within our community.
