The Importance of Flood Irrigation
Neighbor Ed Lebow has created a wonderful slide show showing the historical significance of flood irrigation in the Valley. Hudson Manor is part of that history.
Hudson Manor History
The grandson of the developer of our Hudson Manor dropped off a portfolio of old photos

the problems our park was having when a number of homeless people had made Hudson
Manor Part their home. Dennis Cahill had just been elected to our City Council and includes
neighbor Shelly White as well.

practice playing their guitars and flutes there and yes there was even a person spotted in a yoga
position in meditation! This was truly a neighborhood project - with lots of people volunteering
their time and energy. See the Labyrinth page for photos of the park in
