Leita Thompson bought the land in 1946 and made it her home until her 1978 death. During her lifetime, Thompson was an early female banking executive who helped other working women with retirement assistance, disability, housing and social and professional recognition. Upon her death, she donated her property to the foundation she created to carry out her work, the Leitalift Foundation.
There is an off-leash dog area at the Leita Thompson Memorial Park on the north side of Hwy 92 (1355 Woodstock Rd).
The park also provides the following amenities: benches, water fountain, poop bag station, and porta-potty. There is a Small & Large dog area.
