Inscription.  William Henry Walters Park (formerly Dempster's Park, a horse-race track) was officially donated to the town on July 15, 1936 by its namesake during the 75th year celebration of the signing of the charter (1861). The 24 acre tract was designated to be used specifically as a recreational area for the citizens of Phillipsburg. Much of the landscaping and stonework remaining today had been completed by the W.P.A. during the "Great Depression" years. Mr. Walters was a distinguished attorney and a lifelong resident of Phillipsburg.
 
Erected by Town of Phillipsburg, New Jersey.
