The City moved forward with development of the property and dedicated Zalud Park in 1978. At the time of its original construction, a splendid and tranquil rose garden was incorporated. The heirs of J. Claude Nelson were the benefactors that made the tribute to the late Mr. Nelson possible in the form of the rose garden with its various components. The plaque remains memorializing Erma Nelson’s love for her late husband in donating the rose plants.
Zalud Park now boasts two softball diamonds, a roller hockey/ basketball/ volleyball area, a covered pavilion and a children’s playground. It is also the only park to offer two lighted tennis courts, a 9-hole disc golf course, pickleball courts, cornhole sets and a ping pong table.
