5th generation local appreciates park

Jim Rooks’ great grandfather Roy Van Vleck and his brother migrated to Jackson from Michigan in 1906. While en route to Oregon, they detoured to Jackson Hole for a “quick” hunting and fishing trip. One hundred and five years later their kids and kids’ kids (and so on) are still in the valley. As a father of two, young, 6th generation Jackson natives, Jim and  his family visit R Park.

Of R Park, Rooks said,

As a 5th generation Jackson Hole native, R Park is one of the very best additions to our natural and human community that I have witnessed in my lifetime.

As a long-time professional educator of students of all ages, Jim’s opinion of R Park holds even more weight.  We’re thrilled the Rooks family enjoys R Park–see you out there on a sunny day!
