General Notes: Husband - Lloyd Carl Baron
By Susan Gordanier The Hillsboro Argus The Argus
Once word spreads, the woodland pond at Rood Bridge Park promises to rank high on the list of Hillsboro's most beautiful sites. For those who attended Saturday's dedication, it's already special. In relative seclusion at the park's east side, the redesigned pond, waterfalls and pavilion feature benches and walkways that invite slow strolls and contemplation. Lloyd Baron, namesake of the surrounding garden, said the new site represents 40 years work, going back to when he first proposed the rhododendron as official city flower. "That's what comes from being persistent," he said. Although age may have dampened his physical capabilities, Baron still has plans for the garden's future. He said plantings would continue until the west side's rhodies meet those at the east side pond, expanding the park's current 600 varieties. The Baron family's contributions were noted during the ceremony, kicked off by Corinne Bloomfield, Hillsboro Park and Recreation's community resource manager. She took credit as the "one who ordered this gorgeous day." Temperatures were less scorching than Friday's high 90s. Mary Ordal, Parks & Rec project leader, praised the many groups and individuals who had made the project a success: the Dal Baker Charitable Trust, Hillsboro Community Foundation, the Oregon International Airshow, Rotary Club Foundation, Tualatin Valley Garden Club and the local chapter of the American Rhododendron Society and others. All would be honored by a list posted in the park's River House. City Councilman Ed Dennis introduced Stan Baron, Lloyd's son, who expressed the family's gratitude for the beauty of the pool and pavilion, which is named for his mother, Trepha M. Baron, who died in September 2007 and never saw the pavilion. Her granddaughter would soon celebrate her marriage within it, he said. Two others in attendance had a different relationship to the day's events: Bob Schotz, of Allusa Architecture, the pavilion's designer, and Sadafumi Uchiyama, the landscape architect.
