Willow Park

THIS SMALL NEIGHBORHOOD PARK WAS PURCHASED IN 1905 FROM THE BARINGER LAND COMPANY.

Originally, this park served as part of a plan to make a more natural border for Cherokee Park. Willow Park achieved its own identity when Willow Avenue was extended to Cherokee Parkway in 1946.

It is a popular place for summer concerts and festivals.
