|William C. Shore at the Bunker Hill|
reenactment at Bunker Hill Park, 1898.
(Elayne Shore Shuman)
|Grove Park, c. 1890 (Los Gatos Museum)|
In 1920, after World War I, the park was renamed once again, this time to Memorial Park, though trains rarely, if ever, deposited tourists there anymore. By this time it was the community park for the town of Los Gatos and a respectable place for locals and visitors. Revelers were expected to go to other remote locations such as Sunset Park or Brookdale for their indecencies. Locals, though, could enjoy the new swimming pool that was built on the south side of the park in 1927.
