Tidy little square of a park. Nice place to meet up with someone, have a chat, stroll around the square. Trees were blooming and very pretty.

The most interesting feature of the park is the W.C. Handy statue. It's a quiet place to take a stroll.

This is right near the shopping district. It is worth stopping by. Wilson Park is a quiet, clean park. The fountain really is beautiful!
