We can thank A.L. Trent, in part, for setting the standard early on when he created the space just a few blocks from the downtown square enjoyed today as one of Fayetteville residents favorites, Wilson Park. In the early 1900’s Trent created a swimming pond fed by the springs off Scull Creek and built some cabins for tourists. In 1926 a group of businessmen bought it from Trent, drained the pond and made a softball field and then built a swimming pool. The beautiful park that we enjoy today is filled with all kinds of beautiful botanicals and a magical castle playscape created by Frank Williams in 1980. For decades many sweethearts have shared a blanket for a picnic on that grassy knoll overlooking the creek. It’s the place of many community activities such as Easter egg hunts and company picnics, summer drama and tennis camps and boot camps for the fitness fanatics!
