Located along the Oligarchy Ditch in the northeastern section of Longmont, Lanyon Park commemorates contributions made to the community by Ray Lanyon. Lanyon was a local newspaper editor and publisher who also served as Mayor from 1931 to 1942. The Lanyon Fund was established after Ray Lanyon's death in 1981 and made annual grants to the community. Lanyon Park was purchased in 1964 for $15,184 and is 8.4 acres in size. It includes established stands of cottonwood and willow trees that provide shade for picnics along the Oligarchy Ditch.
