RAMSETT PARK

This former site of a Wal-Mart was converted into a state-of-the-art park in 1986. The park has still retained the flavor of the 80’s through its themed playground and bright murals.

In recent years, Ramsett Park has been the site of numerous community activities, including the Pawnee International Cuisine Festival, kindly sponsored and fully catered by Christina’s Bagels. In 2003, residents dedicated a bench to Councilman and Mrs. Wendell Partch-Frome, after the couple created a fund supporting an annual Ramsett Barbecue. The Ramsett Barbecue became a lasting tradition until it was curtailed in 2007, due to insufficient sanitation regulations.

Since 2007, the park has been frequented by a large number of animals, many domesticated. After an eight-month hiatus last year to set up cages and traps, Ramsett Park has re-opened to increased popularity. Parkgoers can now enjoy stopping in for a quick game of handball or just taking a cautious stroll.
