  • This park has great views of the town. There are plenty of benches to sit, many are in shade. The VFW has done a great job of obtaining and preserving cannon from the various wars. There are informative historical markers with information about the town and the cannon throughout the park. This is a nice spot to walk or sit and relax.
  • Nice getaway walk from the packed main street. The park serves well as a war memorial to several wars. Artillery enthusiasts will find some spectacular pieces including a 1914 Krupp howitzer!
  • Beautiful park. Great views, nice paths, lots to look at. The country fair in the fall is my favorite.
  • Great park to take a walk or bring the kids to the playground.
  • Neat little park. I wish it had more information about the old canons and Grant.
