Wilson Park Improvements

What is this Project?

A series of improvements will soon be made to Wilson Park, including a new social hub in the center of the park. This project is partially funded by the Park Improvement Bond approved by Fayetteville residents in 2019.

A new pavilion will be built in place of the existing restroom building. The new structure will include restrooms, a community information board, spaces for patrons to socialize and a changeable mural. 

Why is it Important?

Wilson Park is one of Fayetteville's oldest and most popular parks. The improvement projects will create additional usage space for residents and support programming such as summer camps while also protecting the natural environment.
