Historical Information
This park is named for Hugh W. Wallace, the city councilman responsible for getting the property allocated as a city park.

A search of the park and school yard will reveal a curious collection of 11 bronze objects tucked away in unexpected places. Entitled Eleven Very Small Sculptures, they were created by artist Bill Will in 1998. Another art installation in the park is a 1980 sculpture by Manuel Izquierdo called Silver Dawn. Izquierdo is professor emeritus of Pacific Northwest College of Art.
