These musical instruments are fun for all ages and stages of development. The idea was inspired from the sound installation at the Perot Museum in Dallas Texas.
The park will also offer free wifi, native landscaping, and seating made possible through memorial donations. This is a handicap friendly park with continuous flat surfaces and ample navigation walk paths.

Artist Tom Lea was contracted in April 1941 to paint a mural for the Seymour Post Office.
The painting was designed to depict early life in Seymour and Baylor county when Comanche Indians were an integral part of life. The oil and canvas painting was completed for $950 and installed in 1942. Tom Lea and his wife Sarah Lea were declared, by proclamation of the Mayor of Seymour, to be honorary citizens of Seymour on October 19, 2000.
The Post Office was recently renovated to accommodate the physically handicapped and will remain a part of Seymour for years to come.
Before T-Rex ever reared his head, Dimetrodon roamed the land as the “Terrible Lizard” of the Permian Era. The town of Seymour is only a stone’s throw from one of the greatest Permian bone beds in the entire world; it only makes sense that the creatures of the Permian – Seymouria, Dimetrodon, Edaphasaur, and Eryops (just to name a few) – should be the stars of the show. West Texas, and Seymour, in particular, is home to some of the best Permian skeletons in existence, and the Whiteside is privileged to show off these fantastic discoveries. Visitors will feel like they’ve been transported to 288 million years ago as they rub shoulders with the titans of the age.
