At A Glance
Wilson Park Pool
According to research by Jerry Hogan, Fayetteville historian, a man named A.L. Trent owned Wilson Park as early as 1906. In March 1926, a group of investors, including Noah Drake, purchased the property. They opened a swimming pool the following year. The park was sold to the city for $16,000 in 1944, and the Wilson Park site has been as a public pool ever since.
