Rafik and Mary Sue Itani donated this natural linear park to the city in 1997, development of the park began in 2006, and continued through 2009.
In May of 2008 during the Arbor Day Celebration, a Liberty Elm Tree was planted. The idea of Liberty embodied in a living tree came from Boston in 1765, when a club calling itself the "Sons of Liberty" met under an elm to hear speeches against the Stamp Act.
In the Spring of 2009 the Palouse Conservation District and a number of volunteers planted a large number of trees and shrubs in the park. In 2010 the park staff constructed a gazebo. Future plans are for a paved path through the park.
