Holiday Square

Holiday Square

Each year Conwell Park transforms into a holiday wonderland.  From the windows of Wyoming Medical Center, patients and their families enjoy the beauty of the holidays and, in the park below, children play, couples take romantic walks, and families create lasting memories.  The park is part of Casper’s identity and a holiday tradition.
