About Wilcox Park
A sweet little getaway in the city! Splash pad, basketball & tennis courts, picnic tables & an enclosed shelter, and two playgrounds with separate climbing structures.
They even have some old school playground equipment. It's also a good place to hammock, play frisbee, or fly a kite.
The Playground at Wilcox Park
Two modern playsets over mulch, including slides, swings and climbing structures. Woodchip ground cover.
The Splashpad at Wilcox Park
Circular, concrete splash pad with water fountain features. This splash pad does not have any "toys" on it.
Rather, visitors will enjoy running through the spray elements as they go off at various times while parents relax on nearby benches.
