Ella Sharp Park has always been an important place in Jackson. In olden times, elaborate flower gardens and a zoo were there, including "Monkey Island", which is long gone. Today you find an excellent museum, swimming pool, softball fields, soccer field, driving range, planetarium, and the restored homestead of Ella Sharp herself, who deeded the land for the park. And of course, there is an excellent golf course as well! A string of jewels we are immensely proud of in our town of Jackson, the "City of Beautiful Trees".
