Lehi in Utah County, Utah — The American Mountains (Southwest)
Frank H. Eastmond Park
Frank Hindley Eastmond (1892-1961)
— Clarissa Taylor Eastmond (1895-1961) —
Patrons from Salt Lake to Santaquin enjoyed Saratoga's Saturday-night dances under a bright moon casting a silver path across Utah Lake. By day the sun made a picture-perfect image of Mt. Timpanogos on the lake. Saratoga became a popular place for parties, family reunions, company picnics and camping trips.
Frank's efforts at Saratoga profited from his similar developments of Geneva Resort (near Geneva Steel Plant), and Park Ro-Shea (near Springville). He was also deeply involved in successful mining operations, as well as motel, outdoor theaters, and food services on sites from St. George to Salt Lake. He taught wood, metal and electronic shop as Irving Jr. High School in the Salt Lake District for thirty years where countless young me responded to his special way of teaching.
The most important part of his rich and colorful legacy was his and Clarissa's family of five children. The property on which this park and the Utah Southern Railroad Depot were built was once owned by Frank and Clarissa Eastmond. It was donated to Lehi City Corporation by Jefferson and Alberta Eastmond.
