Willson Park, to the west, was a city park from 1853 until 1965 when it officially became part of the Capitol grounds. The park is named after William H. Willson, preacher, physician and founder of Salem who donated the land for the Capitol and the surrounding land.

 

It is the setting for the Waite Fountain, Parade of Animals sculpture, a Liberty Bell replica, and a gazebo constructed in 1982.
