The Band Shell was built in 1941, by Charles K. Hollingsworth, father of Virginia Kirk with men paid by the government on the Worker Project Administration Program. A program for unemployed workers due to the Depression. The decoration on the Band Shell was done by Bill Carr in 1976 for the United States Bicentennial 1776-1976. The Wyoming Centennial Logos and Living Legacy were also painted by Bill Carr in 1990. The Band Shell with the slogan “Small But Proud” became the Town’s Logo on September 1, 1988.

The Property for the Park was willed to the Town by Levi Z. Leiter, January 27, 1936. Playground and park equipment have been donated by local service organizations. In 1985 C.M. Humberson proposed having the flag pole and a light installed so the flags could be flown 24 hours a day.

The Public Bathrooms in the park was a Lingle Lions Club project in 1990 and the new Picnic Shelters in 1992. With a combination of volunteer help from the Lions Club, town employees and the Lingle Volunteer Firemen.
