On 14 November, 1987, Pecan Creek Park was dedicated. A seven-year project of the Woman’s Council, Pecan Creek Park extends for 10 blocks –12 acres– along Pecan Creek. The park included trails, six clear span arch bridges, three cameo recreational areas, multi-purpose pavilions, playground equipment, and picnic areas. Included in the project were Schadler Meadow–featuring playground equipment, picnic areas, and restrooms, north of the municipal swimming pool; Park Plaza–pavilion, specially-designed lighting for night-time use, south of park headquarters; and Schrank Park–pavilion, restrooms, hillside slide, swings, and picnic area. — ECW

Recently, the newest addition to Pecan Creek Park was built.  The park facilities run along Pecan Creek as it meanders through Hamilton. It is a project that has taken several years to complete and is a work in progress. — DH
