Pig Park Update

Recently a PLN reader reported that a park for employees of the Washington State penitentiary (WSP) was being built only for employees. The park opened on March 18, 1991, as an "employee park" as a 4-acre area adjacent to the highway and east of the penitentiary, it is surrounded by a new six-foot cyclone fence. The park is open from dawn to dusk and its use is limited to full time WSP employees. The park is now on land that was formerly a game farm area.

We would appreciate any more information on this park from our readers, namely, if the land or facilities is being bought or paid for in anyway with state tax money or inmate welfare fund money, who approved the project, etc. Anyone with information on this please write Paul Wright, either direct or in care of PLN.
