Developed as a result of the activism of a community action group to bring a park to their northwest neighborhood, the land was purchased on their behalf by local industrialist W.T. Rawleigh and deeded over to an openly receptive Park District on July 13, 1948. Originally called West View Park, the name was changed in honor of Mr. Rawleigh’s son Wilbur who died in camp during World War I. Today, Wilbur Park features nicely landscaped terrain and play equipment that was installed in 1996.
