Ethel Lumsdon Park is named for a long-time DuPont resident who resided in the Historic Village for 67 years. She moved to DuPont in 1927 with her husband William who worked for the DuPont Company. She was a member of the town's garden and ladies club and also helped get the town on the National Register for Historic Places. She believed people needed to be closer and had a great love for her community; especially its children. 

The park was recently put in place with a playground, picnic areas and a few other recreational options. The property originally had garages on it, but were torn down. Seeing kids riding bikes on the remains of the concrete slabs, the City elected to build a park in its place with a councilmember suggesting to name it after Ethel.
