Have you ever had something happen out of the blue that seemed like it was meant to happen. Some would call it coincidence. Terry and Melissa Barris would call it divine intervention. This is what happen to them after a shopping trip in preparation of Hurricane Ian. A Lehigh native, Melissa, was surprised when Terry turn down the wrong street and saw a for sale sign. The Couple was shopping around for half an acre and had stumbled upon an acre for the same price. The immediately called the seller and the Barris Park was born.

Believed to be divine intervention because the next day Hurricane Ian destroyed the for sale sign  making notice to the public impossible.
