Victory Park

This four-acre parcel of land that was set aside as a community park space by the Board of Park Commissioners in 1919 with a design drawn in 1923 by the Olmsted Brothers.

The area was noted for its magnificent trees, including gum, oak, osage orange and elm. It was originally called Greenwood Park, but its name was changed to Victory Park, in commemoration of World War I.

Victory Park has historically been the site for band concerts, plays, and gathering space for choral groups, as well as a place for active and passive play. Since its inception, this greenspace has been a focal point and a source of community pride for the surrounding neighborhood.
