Badger Park

Beautiful Badger Park was constructed during the 1930’s. It was financed primarily with funds from the W.P.A (Works Progress Administration) and was sponsored by Mayor Dr. H.W. Hoesly whose dream was to build a park. During this time the shelter houses, pool, bathhouse, baseball field, football field, tennis courts and picnic areas were constructed.

Our park is enjoyed by the community every day whether it be a picnic, ballgame, or just families enjoying the playground. We invite you to visit.
