- Picnic Tables
Located just east of Hanley Road on Wydown Boulevard, in the Wydown Business District, Wydown Park is a unique urban space. Completely renovated in 2002, this park offers visitors a diversity of experiences. The brick column entry to the park is flanked by seasonal gardens welcoming visitors to an open patio area with cafe style tables and chairs. Patrons from Starbucks enjoy their morning coffee in the tranquil setting of the park. There is a winding sidewalk through the cozy half acre level parcel. The outside of the walk on the north and east is bordered by a stone wall garden containing a diversity of flowering shrubs, continual blooming perennials, flowering trees and annual flowers that are changed seasonally. Shrubs and trees that provide shade to the wrought iron benches that are placed to allow areas for conversation border the western side. The open grassy area in the center is a space for children to run and play. The park also contains the stone sculpture "Youth" by sculptor Todd Frahm. Vine-covered pergolas with benches are located at the northwest and southeast corners of the walkway. A number of flowering containers highlight the park with seasonal color.
