At Corpus Christi and St. Mary’s, is Beeville’s smallest, and least known, park. But what the Wilhelmina Barnhart Park lacks in size, it makes up in charm — decorative lamp posts, an outdoor mural, sculpture and a bench, all serenaded by birds and accented by red yucca. In layout it’s a mirror image of Jack Base Park, with its Margaret Moser Butterfly Garden, just east of the Community Center. The two are like bookends to the Center; both parks are gifts of the Joe Barnhart Foundation.
