   Withers Park
   Withers Park has become a central area
   for fellowship and exercise with its walk-
   ing trail, playground, restroom facilities,
   and shelter. The variety of trees and well-
   manicured landscape in the park gives way
   to the park’s beauty. The Wall of Honor
   pays tribute to those from Wythe County
   who gave their lives in wars or military
   actions, civic leaders and members of the
   Wythe County Sports Hall of Fame. With-
   ers Park provides citizens with an informal
   recreation area and is the site for special
   events, industrial and business picnics,
   and socials.
