Boy Scout Aiden Swenson holds his Certificate of Recognition awarded by the City of Orinda for his installation of the historic sign.

    Prospective Eagle Scout Aidan Swenson on March 23 completed the installation of an informational plaque in Orinda Community Park commemorating the California and Nevada Railroad and the landmark original railroad trestle post that lies just east of the park. The installation was Swenson’s project on his path to becoming an Eagle Scout.
    Swenson designed, funded, and produced the sign, working with the Historic Landmark Committee and Parks and Recreation Committee to finalize the details and placement of the structure, ultimately assembling the work along with fellow scouts from Boy Scout Troop 237. The sign can be found along the northeast pathway of the Community Park, 28 Orinda Way.
