Olive Street Park


The lot, measuring 80 feet by 120 feet, was donated to the city in 1909 by the Ford, McKee and Woods families with the deed stipulating: “forever for use as a public park.” Except the proposed pocket park has yet to be built, much to the dismay of descendants of the three families as well as Bankers Hill residents.

Update: A ground breaking ceremony was held early in 2023 with a completion date of late 2023. The park will include a children's play area, exercise equipment and an AIDS Memorial.
