Bower Park is located in the 300 block of S. Whittle.
Bower Park was originally named Tower Park. In 1880 a 125 foot brick water tower was built on the site. The water tower was demolished in 1941. A water fountain marks its location today.
White squirrels are regularly fed at Bower Park so it has become an excellent location to view the famous white squirrels while visiting Olney or while enjoying a lunch break in the park at the picnic tables.
Bower Park is also home to a Little Free Library as provided by Haley Simpson, and the white squirrel statue as donated by an anonymous donor. The First National Bank in Olney added "The Stage" 2018, and is used for the Sounds of Summer Free Concert Series each Thursday evening in the months of June and July. The Stage can be reserved for free, public performances (excluding the months of June and July) by calling the Office of the City Clerk at 395-7302 x3.
