Vollis Simpson Whirligig Park is free and open daily, including holidays, from 5:00 am to midnight.

Visitors will never be at a loss for something to do at the park. A central lawn amphitheater where everything from music to film engages audiences. The park shelter hosts the Wilson Farmers & Artisan Market, educational programs, and family fun activities. Benches, tables, and chairs invite picnicking, reading, or just enjoying art and nature. Practice Tai chi, have a picnic or a family reunion, play flashlight tag among the reflective whirligigs—the possibilities are endless!
