Poteau’s Dunbar City Park

Poteau’s Dunbar Park is located on what used to be the old Boy Scout Camp.  The park is named in honor of the old Dunbar School, which was an all-black school and the first in Oklahoma to be desegregated.  The park was founded by Ms. Ladell Phillips , Mrs Byrd, and Ms. Linda.  It was upgraded later by Lisa Lynn and several volunteers.

This Poteau park is typically pretty quiet, with few visitors per day.  It has a nice pavilion, swings, monkey bars, and a merry-go-round.  It is set up more as a neighborhood park than a city park.  Maintained by the City of Poteau, this park provides a nice, relaxing atmosphere for those who want to avoid the larger city parks in the area.

Dunbar Park is located at 1305 Clayton ave
