J.W. Denver Williams Memorial Park

The land was donated by J.W. Denver and Dorothy S. Williams in memory of their son who was killed in WWII.

This is the primary activity facility within our park system. All of the structured programs that are offered take place at this park. Also many of the family-oriented facilities are located in this park. All year round one can find some type of activity going on. Annual activities include the City of Wilmington Fourth of July Celebration, the Banana Split Festival, and Relay for Life. See you at the park!
