HISTORY

The small park in town was renamed in December 2018 after Nathan Wetzel,  the town’s first mayor and well-respected community leader. He taught Agriculture for many decades at Liberty Hill High School. Wetzel, who passed away in 2001, won Liberty Hill’s first mayoral election in May 1999 with over 79 percent of the vote.

A single crepe myrtle was planted at the park in memory of long-time citizen Wendell McLeod. McLeod, who passed away in 2019, lived in Liberty Hill for 79 years. He played key roles in youth sports leagues, the volunteer fire department, and spent 40 years with the Liberty Hill Water Supply Corporation. He also served on the School Board at one time and was elected to multiple terms on the City Council.
