The site of Paris Park was actually a natural lake area many years ago. The park was established in 1905 and is 101 years old! It was named in honor of a gentleman who was a prominent figure in early Arkansas City and who raised the funds to purchase the park land. His name was Ulman or "Ol" Paris. The natural lake was silted in by a flood and later the WPA converted the area to the city's public swimming pool which is still in use.

Today the park is still a very popular site which boasts all the amenities. This includes a playground area and equipment, picnic and park benches, BBQ grills, a covered picnic area, wide sidewalks, drinking fountains and a tennis area. The playground equipment has recently been updated as part of the Families First Initiative. I believe there are restrooms but I am not sure. The park is not well lit at night.
