In 1978, the community asked the Parks & Recreation Department to consider a lot where a house had been condemned as a possible park. In 1981, the park was purchased with bonds and Federal Grant funds. The park consists of six lots that were either condemned or deemed unsuitable for homes. The park was constructed in 1982.
