Standin’ on the Corner Park (opened 1999 in Winslow, Arizona) is a public park, commemorating the song “Take It Easy”, written by Jackson Browne and Glenn Frey, and, most famously, recorded by the Eagles. The song includes the verse “Well, I’m a standing on a corner in Winslow, Arizona and such a fine sight to see. It’s a girl, my Lord, in a flatbed Ford slowin’ down to take a look at me”. The park contains a two-story trompe-l’œil mural by John Pugh, and a bronze statue of a life-sized man with a guitar from the Eagles song “Take it Easy”
If you are traveling upon I-40 instead of bypassing Winslow consider taking a break from the monotonous drudgery of interstate driving and check out the park. Walk around. Stretch those legs!!! Consider visiting a near-by business if they are open. Since you are in town there may be a firm in another part of town that grabs your attention and is open. At the least you can state that you have seen the park/monument/memorial. Do it. You’ll be glad you did.
