"Classified as a Neighborhood Park it serves as the recreational and social focus of the neighborhood. One of several parks established after the 1911 $200,000 park bond passed. Wilcox was named for FP Wilcox, who also bequeathed $10,000 to purchase additional lots. Superintendent of Parks (1905-1928) Eugene Goebel designed the the original layout. A bath house and pool was built at the northern end in 1920, but by the 1950's it had been replaced by a shelter and adjoining wading pool."
