Located in the center of Wilson, this working class neighborhood came about because of the strong desire of three adjacent property owners to create housing opportunities for hard working families. It was a success because the entire Wilson community was engaged in the dialogue about what the neighborhood should look like and the development team listened which enabled the collaboration to grow.
Wilson Park now consists of a restored schoolhouse functioning as a community center and preschool, 19 permanently restricted homes for working families, and 6 market homes on town size lots.
The residential infrastructure was shared to reduce costs, minimize roads, create open space and a view corridor to the Teton Range for all community members to enjoy.
