Inscription. For ourselves and for every person who has found pleasure, peace and kinship with nature in these lovely acres, these lands are inscribed by the Kiwanis Club of Wausau.

Charles E. Parker was the prime mover in the acquisition of this land by the Kiwanis Club of Wausau in 1920, and of its ultimate dedication to the enjoyment of all who love beauty.

As fellow-Kiwanians in the club of which he was a principal founder and first president, we ask you, wayfarer, to join us in a tribute of honor, friendship and respect. Charles E. Parker deserves all of these from all of us.
 
Erected 1966 by the Kiwanis Club of Wausau.
