Elizabeth Holmes Hurley Park is an 18-acre public park composed of woodlands, streams, gardens and quiet pathways. From its beginning, Elizabeth Holmes Hurley Park has been a joint venture between public and private interests.
A generous donation in memory of Elizabeth Holmes Hurley from her husband - J.F. Hurley Jr. - and her sons - James Franklin, III, Haden Holmes and Gordon Pannill Hurley - allowed for special, high-quality amenities and plantings, as well as an ambitious schedule for the park's development.
Many gardens, trees and furnishings have been dedicated in memory or honor of individuals or groups. Contributions of any amount will be gratefully accepted for long term maintenance of the park. Development of the park is based on a master plan, so all major gifts are reviewed by the staff.
