Harold Bell Wright Park

Harold Bell Wright Park is located in the Harold Bell Wright Estates, off of Wilmot between Speedway and Broadway. It is located behind the Murphy-Wilmot Library, but you can’t get to it from the library. (See Google Maps.)

There is good parking and nice shade trees. Restrooms are available in the library, a 3-minute walk across the soccer fields.
