Curtis Park, located at 3500 Lovers Lane, was purchased from C. W. Snider on June 1, 1931.  Later that year, on August 17, Mayor Pro Tempore C. G. King signed the ordinance dedicating the park in honor of H. J. Curtis, who served as Mayor from 1930 to 1938.

Curtis Park is the summer aquatic, social and recreational hub of University Park.  The 50-meter pool has a depth of 3-to 14-feet, and for the brave or young at heart, a 1-meter and a 3-meter diving board. Toddlers and preschool children may enjoy the shaded 2-foot deep wading pool.  To the east of the pool area is a double tennis court, lighted for evening play and equipped with fiberglass practice back boards.  Near the Westminster cul-de-sac is an exciting playground surrounded by benches and picnic tables, with the Turtle Creek ponds in the background.  Not only does the pond provide a haven for numerous waterfowl, it is also a great challenge for the young anglers, since catfish and bass are plentiful.  A floating fountain aerates the water and, as darkness appears, the lights enhance the beauty of the cascading water.  Across the stone bridge, there is another larger picnic area that can easily accommodate a small family reunion.

Restroom-yesTwo portable rest rooms are available at this park site.
