Monument Park, Casper Wyoming

This is Monument Park in Casper, Wyoming. It doesn't really fit the theme of this blog, but given as I recently took photographs of the rails to trails pathway through Casper, and this is on it, I have added it.

This nice little park actually came about due to some controversy. For many years, Casper had a monument of the Ten Commandments, now present in this park, in a park that is across from City Park, and across from St. Anthony's Church. However, a certain group from Kansas added the monument to its protests, even though it asserts church status. Casper, not wishing to yield to the controversy, created this park with monuments to various things significant to the formation of Western culture.
