Fort Smith, Arkansas was a pivotal location in the history of the Wild West. The park replaced a vacant service station on a triangle of land that marked the entrance to downtown. Three monumental statues stand at the park, representing figures from the areas of early civic life that had the largest impact on the positive development of the town: Schools, Healthcare, and Law and Order.
From a burned out lot to a privately owned pocket park, Garrison Commons added much needed greenspace to Garrison Avenue.
