Starting October 10, vehicle access to Fort Zumwalt Park will no longer be allowed as installation of the City’s Celebration of Lights display begins. "The Fort" Disc Golf Course will also be closed at this time. Foot traffic in the park must stay on the asphalt roadway. The Park will re-open to all types of traffic in late January 2017.
Our City’s most scenic park is also our most historic, with a picturesque stone chimney (a relic of Spanish territorial days), a War of 1812 fort site, and the restored Darius Heald Home (circa 1884), all overlooking beautiful Lake Whetsel. Enjoy fishing, picnicking, playing on the playground, and walking through this shady, 48-acre park.
