After receiving a failing grade on a park report card, Eagle Scout Frankiln Burr took on improving Little Dipper Park as part of his Eagle Scout Service project.  The scout installed concrete pads for a bear-proof trash can and a sign at an information kiosk, and made other minor improvements to the park that involved cleaning up graffiti and removing excess sand under the play structure. In 2011, this project became a Neighborhood Park Fix-It project, receiving $45,700 in a legislative grant.
