Wilson Park History
Formerly known as Rockhill Park, the City Council approved re-naming the park Clyde Wilson Memorial Park on June 21, 2010 in honor of Mr. Wilson’s many years of service to the City. His notable activities included serving as a City Council member, one term as the mayor, involvement with many City commissions, and a found/leader of the East Campus Neighborhood Association. For more information on the re-naming of this park, see the related Council items.
