Inscription.  Having lived the last forty-five years of her life at Robin Hill with her husband, Francis Bailey Nimick, and their six children and aware of the increasing population growth in the area in 1970, Mary Nimick graciously bequested through her will, the family's 53 acre property to Moon Township with the proviso that it be "for perpetual use as a park or a wildlife refuge and for the enjoyment of the residents of said township and their friends. Said property to be known thereafter as Robin Hill Park or Robin Hill Wildlife Refuge."

Moon Township accepted her bequest in 1971, and together with the Robin Hill Associates, has worked to add additional acreage to the Park and to create a popular community center.
