The park is located behind the High Springs City Hall. A plaque about the park is located at the city hall and reads:

This shady park site
is the gift of
James Paul
whose civic deeds and spirit
are here enshrined
in perpetual testimony to
the American way of life.
In tribute to the donor and in
acknowledgement of this generous gift
the people of this community
gratefully dedicate this tablet.
The City of High Springs, Florida

An annual Sink Hole de Mayo, first launched in 2007, is held in the park each year. Sink Hole de Mayo includes several interesting competitions, such as a “Slow Motion Bike Race” around the sinkhole and the “Best Salsa in High Springs” contest.
