Nice park with many civil war items to view and read about. If you enjoy history, take time to read all the signs, go to Grants home and attend the reenactment held along the banks.

My husband and I celebrated our anniversary here, sipping champagne while enjoying the beautiful fall colors,and warm temps on the Oct. 21st. Plenty of picnic tables under a covered shelter, park benches, a gazebo (no seating), and a lovely fountain.

Just a short walk across the pedestrian bridge (beautiful views!), over the river, to the well-maintained Grant Park. Old war trophy canons and a large statue of General Grant. Well worth the stroll across the bridge.

This is one of the loviest parks. It has interesting statues and cannons with plaques to read that give you historical facts. The view over the river is breathtaking. It is truly an old fashioned park and one you will enjoy.
