    My 7 year old daughter and I went to this playground this morning. We were there from about 12-1PM. We were the only ones there the entire time. There is a variety of equipment here, and my daughter loved it. There were plenty of benches and picnic tables and lots of shady trees. It’s tucked away in a residential neighborhood – I never would have known about it if it weren’t for this site. I imagine it’s a little more crowded when there is a baseball or soccer game on, but today, it was very quiet.

    I was wondering was the Park named after “William” Carlock in the 1960s??

    I found out today the Park was named after my Grandfather William R. Carlock who passed away in 1960. I was able to locate a article where they also dedicated a new Field House in his mane on September 5, 1970.
