The Barron Park Donkeys represent an historic tradition dating back to the 1930s when Josina and Cornelis Bol cared for a small herd on their property, land that would later become Bol Park. Since 1934, the community has enjoyed the presence of the donkeys, leading the neighbors to continue the tradition to this day. The donkey pasture officially became Bol Park in 1974, as a result of neighbors taxing themselves to raise money for the park. When Josina Bol passed away in 1996, neighborhood volunteers brought Niner and Perry as companions to Mickey, the last of the original Bol herd. Community efforts like these make it possible for families to enjoy the pasture, offering a glimpse into rural life while remaining in the heart of Silicon Valley. This website was created as a supplement to the pasture experience, serving as an online donkey information resource.
