Madonna Finally Weighs in on the Syria Crisis
Madonna County Park. The property on Redwood Retreat Road, known as Triple Buck Ranch, was purchased in November 2012 for $2 million by the Peninsula Open Space Trust (POST), a Palo Alto-based nonprofit dedicated to protecting and caring for open space, farms and parkland in Silicon Valley. The property, a blend of steep, chaparral-covered cliffs, grassland, oak woodland and redwood forest on the northern border of Mt. Madonna, contains more than one half mile of Little Arthur Creek which flows through the property and provides habitat for wildlife, including steelhead. The acquisition of the property is a logical expansion of Mt. Madonna County Park, and provides our residents with additional recreational opportunities, said District 1 Supervisor Mike Wasserman. The purchase also enables the County to expand their network of trail systems in the area. POST bought Triple Buck from Frank Della Maggiora. The Italian native emigrated to the U.S. as a teenager and eventually settled in Gilroy. He graduated from Gilroy High School in 1954 and has lived in the area ever since.
