Background

In 2012 Harry Gallagher, Jr., son of Margaret and Harry Gallagher, Sr., donated the land located at 301 S. Main Street to the City. For many years Margaret and Harry Sr. raised their children in a small home located on the property. Upon Margaret's passing, her children gifted the land to the City to build a public park. To honor the Gallagher Family, the City Council named the property Gallagher Park on September 2, 2014.

Gallagher Park Task Force

The Mayor and Council appointed  a citizen task force to help design the park in a way that would best benefit citizens of the community. The goal was to have a park that would serve people using the Water Park next door, the Chieftain Trail and those living and working near downtown.
