Wilson Park

We're winding our way to the end of the Blogging from A to Z Challenge, and I'm sorry, in some ways, to see the finish line.  I've had so much fun planning the posts, but I also am eager to get back to my normal blogging topics. (I still plan to post daily, which I have done since late April of 2011.)

Today, W day, I'm continuing my theme of America the Beautiful and rescuing some more photos from the depths of my iPhone.

Back in the 1980's, my spouse and I lived in the city of Fayetteville, Arkansas for a brief time.  I worked in Fayetteville for nearly five years.

Years have passed and Fayetteville has grown tremendously.  When we returned for a visit in 2013 for the first time since leaving, we had a list of places we wanted to revisit, or visit for the first time.

Wilson Park, a park almost at the middle of Fayetteville, was towards the top of the list.  Let me show you why.
The Castle is perhaps the most beautiful part of the park.  But it has plenty of competition.
Another view.

How about these gardens?
A bench.

One of several mosaics.

Finally, a plaque tells the story of the park.

Wouldn't you love to spend time in this park?

Only three posts to go, and tomorrow is the hardest day - the letter X. What do you think I will pick for my theme?


  1. What a lovely park! The bench and the bridge are amazing.

  2. How beautiful - especially love the castle! Definitely some place I'd like to visit, and probably would if it was within easy driving distance (a bit far from Maine!)

    Hmm, a town or place that begins with "X" - I have no idea, but I'm sure you have something interesting planned! ;-)

  3. Yes, I'd definitely spend time in this park.

  5. Such a pretty park! I'd love to spend some time there.
