Goar Park is located at 3800 University Boulevard.  On September 5, 1947 the park was dedicated in memory of William P. Goar, who served University Park as Judge of the Municipal Court from 1944 to 1946 and as City Attorney from 1946 until his death in August 1947.

The centerpiece of Goar Park is an open-air gazebo, which is ideal for outdoor weddings, concerts, or other events. The gazebo, a gift from the University Park Foundation in commemoration of the United States Bicentennial, was dedicated on July 4, 1980.   Every July 4th, the Parks Cities Parade makes its way from the Highland Park Town Hall to the Goar Park Gazebo.  A picnic area is located in the Live Oak grove along the Vassar side of the park.  During the spring and fall, the two soccer fields are extensively used by Park Cities children for organized soccer sponsored by the Park Cities YMCA.
