The park is named after Minnie Wood, a german immigrant who lived a typical ‘rags to riches’ story. She and her husband became quite wealthy, although they separated later in life. She donated the land for the park and it’s named in her honor. Park amenities include baseball, soccer and softball fields, spray fountains, playground and picnic areas.
The Spray Fountain cannot be reserved.
