New Park Donkey Named "Amigo"
4/19/2012 11:35 AM
Amigo is the name chosen for Williamson County’s new donkey who resides with half-brother Poco at Berry Springs Park and Preserve. The name for the one-year-old donkey was first submitted by Adrian Grimmett of Georgetown. Williamson County Parks and Recreation received approximately 200 name suggestions for the donkey, and park staff felt Amigo, which means friend, best fit his friendly personality.
Mr. Grimmett is quite familiar with the park and its resident donkeys as he is a Master Gardener who has volunteered his time at the park since last fall. The Master Gardeners volunteer at the park planting flower beds, pulling weeds and doing other gardening tasks. For being first to submit the winning name, he received a free camping certificate for one weekend (subject to availability) which includes two nights, one campsite, one bundle of firewood, and a bag of carrots to feed the donkeys.
Berry Springs Park and Preserve is located on 300 acres off of C.R. 152 north of Georgetown. The park features a playscape, a large picnic pavilion, a birthday pavilion, fishing, camping and miles of hike and bike trails.
