Winfield’s most beautiful park
Island Park, located at the North end of Main Street, is one the most beautiful parks in the area. At roughly 19 acres of land and surrounded by water, this park has plenty of room and things to do on a sunny afternoon. The Park is open to the public every day and can be enjoyed from 5 am to 11 pm throughout the year, so stop by some afternoon and discover what makes this park such a treasure. Don't forget to bring the kids, you can sit back and relax in the Peace Garden as they run around in the playground.
Island Park has been a center meeting point for hundreds of years. It was an ancient camp site and hunting grounds of the Osage Indians. In 1887, due to the forming of townships, it would become the home of the Winfield Chautauqua and would remain a safe haven for them for over thirty years. The island would play host to many annual events including the Odd Fellows’ celebration, A.O.U.W. Day, the Flower Parade, and the Modern Woodmen Log Rolling competition. Today it still holds true to be the meeting ground for many a group and provides ample space for modern day events such as the Isle of Lights every winter and Art in the Park in the Fall.
