This park is right in the middle of downtown, net to the library. A smaller park with a fountain, reflecting pond and paved walking path. The park hosts summer events like Shakespear in the Park, concerts, art shows, plus other miscellaneous events.

Somebody recommend that place for my family but they didn't mention the parking is too far so we searched about parking, it was too far from park. This park is good for people living around the park otherwise total waste of time

Wilcox Park Concert (1 Replies)
Does anyone have any info on evening concerts at Wilcox Park? My husband and I went to a wonderful one here with an orchestra and then fantastic fireworks display by Grucchi afterwards during the summer many years ago (maybe 1980?) Still going on?
