The park was officially renamed in May 2016 by the Lyons Board of Trustees. The grand (re)opening (post flood) was September 9, 2016 which also marked the renaming of the park
as LaVern M. Johnson Park.

Hosted by the Lyons Volunteers

The Lyons Volunteers are a few of Lyons' unsung heroes - let's show them our gratitude! Thank the Lyons Volunteers in person, as they host this year's Good Old Days' Pancakes in the Park!
Following the 2013 flood, a group of selfless individuals strapped up their boots and offered their help across the community, under the name of the Lyons Volunteers. Today, the Lyons Volunteers is a registered 501(c)3, and continue to offer their services throughout the community, two days a week.
The Volunteers will be serving up pancakes, eggs, and sausage in Sandstone Park, from 8:30 to 10:30 a.m. on Sat., June 24 Thanks to the generous donation of food by Oskar Blues, all proceeds benefit Lyons Volunteers!
A $5 donation per plate is suggested.
