The signs at the park explain the unique name for this park, at one time this was where many of the old schools of Darrington were once located. The sign to the east of Old School Park shows a painting of one of the old schools that once stood here. This was considered the "new school" back in 1932 when it was built. This mural shows the school after a renovation and expansion of the building in 1952-1953.
The first school was built to meet the growing needs of our community back in 1922. Some of the materials were brought up by train, lumber was milled locally and the building was built by volunteers. Learn more about the old schools of Old School Park.
