  • City Owned Parks & Public Spaces

Classified as a Neighborhood Park it serves as the recreational and social focus of the neighborhood.

A former brickyard, the Midtown site was purchased in 1906 by Alfred Baxter, who founded the Baxter Laundry Co. in 1876. Baxter used the Fountain & Eastern site to expand his operation with a two-story building. After burning to 1975, the City cleared the site. In the 1980’s, neighbors rallied to form the Midtown Neighborhood Assoc. and converted the vacant lot to the park.
