Visitors to Lawton Park can enjoy leisurely strolls down a wide pathway that carries the visitor through hills, woods and grassy lawns. There is also a dirt path that winds its way around maple trees and leads to three old picnic tables, as well as more primitive paths blazed by neighborhood children.
Lawton Park was purchased by the City in 1952, and named after the nearby Fort Lawton Army Base. The base was named after Major General Henry Ware Lawton, who was known for his capture of Chief Geronimo in 1886.
