Visit the Town Square while lodging in Jackson WY
The “Town Square” is the cultural, civic and economic heart of Jackson WY. For those lodging in Jackson WY, visiting this historical park is a can’t miss. The George Washington Memorial Park (its formal name) was dedicated in 1934. One unique feature of the park are the large arches that decorate each of the four entrances to the park. The arches are constructed of elk antler sheds that are collected from the nearby National Elk Refuge. And in the heart of the park you will find a statue of the legendary mountain man and explorer, John Colter.
The Town Square is bordered by merchants of all kinds, including restaurants, galleries and retail shops.
During the summer months, visitors can take a ride in a horse-drawn carriage around the park. The nightly Town Square Shootout, performed by the Jackson Hole Playhouse, takes place every evening (except Sundays). The Jackson Hole Historical Society and Museum guides a free walking tour of Jackson which begins on the Town Square. There are many other events held throughout the year in the Town Square, such as the annual Easter Egg Hunt and the always popular Elk Fest.
In the winter months the Town Square houses an ice skating rink, and Santa makes his annual visit to the Town Square amid the beautifully decorated trees and arches. Any time of the year, the Town Square in Jackson is a dynamic center for all kinds of fun and interesting activities. Come stay with us at Luton’s Teton Cabins, your best bet for lodging Jackson WY
