Significance: Designed by Warren H. Manning in the early 1920s, this is an extremely effective combination of a well defined controlling element (a radiating star) with a relaxed village park atmosphere. The relaxed atmosphere was created by a judicious arrangement of open spaces for active pursuits and smaller, denser spaces for more sedate activities. The plantings were a collection of largely native flora, frequently wildflowers. The park, while it was well maintained up to about 1950, was the center of village activities. Sports events, band concerts, flower watching, and strolling were all eagerly pursued. No other open space of this caliber exists in the Upper Peninsula of Michigan
