History
This park was opened by funds donated by Mrs. Maria Chapman in memory of her husband, William J. Chapman.

The Westfield Kiwanis Club donated the basketball court and lighting in 1967.

In 1974 playground equipment installed and in 1980 an entire playground including field house was installed with funds from the land and water conservation fund.

In 1998 the playground equipment was removed due to outdated and unsafe equipment, and replaced with a playscape and swings along with a new spotlight to help prevent vandalism to the park.

In 1999 basketball backboards and rims were replaced along with electrical wires repaired in restrooms.
