Designed to commemorate Guymon's 100th anniversary, Centennial Park is the result of $180,000 of donated cash and materials, and
thousands of hours of labor that ended up involving most of the
community. Bedecked with flags, a pedestal clock, a pumpjack, a
bandstand and other objects, it is as much a march through Guymon's

community's history. We praise Guymon's Centennial Park for being a
beautiful crossroads of pride and good news for Oklahoma.
