Where Wheeling Gathers

Almost a century ago, in 1925, the Wheeling community celebrated the opening of Wheeling Park — funded by the community, for the community. Today, the park remains our city’s gathering space, a treasured location to visit, play, and celebrate. And now the community is once again coming together to fund renovations and upgrades that will ensure our park’s vitality for decades to come.
