Wilson Park Pool Buildings Renovation
The City of Fayetteville is proud to announce that the renovations are complete! The Wilson Park swimming pool was built around 1926 and is one of the oldest pools in Arkansas that is still in use today. It is the only municipal pool within the City of Fayetteville and had over 20,800 visitors in 2013 during the summer season. The original Wilson Park pool buildings were built between the 1930s and the 1960s. The last significant renovation of the buildings was in 1983.
In 2012, the pool and deck surfaces were repaired and resurfaced as the first phase of the Wilson Park pool renovation. The latest improvements included renovation of the pool house and concession buildings. The renovations increased efficiency in use of space and ventilation, while providing better ADA access and updated restroom and shower facilities. The picture, below left, is the pool building in 2013. The picture, below right, is in May 2014. All improvements have been completed within budget and without raising the cost of admission. The pool is now open for the 2014 season. Come take a dip and enjoy the new improvements!
Mount Sequoyah Gardens Improvements
The City of Fayetteville Parks and Recreation Department is delighted to announce that the much anticipated improvements at Mount Sequoyah Gardens are complete! Mount Sequoyah Gardens is located in Fayetteville’s southeast quadrant along Summit Avenue. The park overlooks the city from the west slope of Mount Sequoyah and offers passive recreational activities in an open space with stunning views of the city. The elevation is 1,590 feet at the top of the park property.
The project included construction of an overlook arbor with native flagstone paving, a native stone seat wall, ADA accessible parking and access and replacement of the existing asphalt entry drive.
