Luther Jones Park, formerly known as Fairview Park, encompasses a small city block and consists of one youth softball field and an open play area. Live Oak trees line a potion of the park perimeter. The park was renamed in 1996 for Luther Goodrich Jones. Mr. Jones, a member of the Texas A&M faculty from 1919 until 1951, was on the first City Council and secretary of the school board from 1941-46. He was very active in youth programs, and in 1964 donated the land for this park.
