2003 - Government Program Award - Beautification & Landscaping - Hooker Parks Committee

Transforming an area where tumbleweeds used to reign supreme into an oasis of beauty has been an ongoing labor of love and backbreaking work for the members of the Hooker Parks Committee. They took a shoestring budget and stretched it mightily to create the impressive Williams Homesteaders' Park on Highway 54.

Our judges praised the imaginative use of an old shed on the property and the recycled use of picnic tables and signage from an abandoned site. Other features include western silhouettes, trees, benches, paths, a windmill, train caboose, pond, waterfall and a wide variety of flowers and shrubbery.

The Williams Homesteaders' Park is a testament to the pioneers who settled there a century ago and the dreamers and volunteers of today. For citizens and visitors alike, it is Oklahoma's handsome refuge of good news in the Panhandle region.
