HistoryThis is the site of the Wheat Ridge City Administration Building and is named for the Hayward family that sold the property to the city. This was the long time farm of the John Olsons. Bike and walking paths, a playground, picnic tables, and a fountain are features of the park. The fountain source and site is the former artesian well of the Olsons. Steve Driftmier, the last owner of the Wilmore Dahlia Farm and Nursery at West 38th Avenue and North Wadsworth Boulevard, landscaped and donated the garden on the eastern edge of this park dedicated to the W.W. Wilmore family. A veterans' memorial is to be erected here.
