This is a very nice park with a level, paved walking path around it, basketball court, playground, exercise equipment, and a small spray ground. I great place to bring kids in warmer weather where they can run around the spraypark. Bring a towel! Also, great place to walk around the path and use the outdoor excersice equipment. Very friendly park... More

Legion park is my child's favorite park tied with Smothers. While it's hard to compete with Smothers, it offers a totally different and unique play experience. It's kept very nice and in a great location. It boasts outdoor workout equipment for adults, basketball courts, shelter houses, a wonderful park for children, and the universal favorite: a zip line for kids.... More

Legion Park is a great place to bring kids year round. There's a lot of play equipment and room to run. In the summer there is a small water park area, which kids really enjoy. There's a concrete walking path that circles the park. Lots of 100 year old trees to provide shade. Basketball courts always seem to be busy.... More

They recently got new playground equipment (and an exercise area for the adults) and everyone's favorite seems to be the zip line! This park hosts a walking track and lots of picnic and sheltered areas (that must be booked in advance) for large family gatherings. In the summer it has a spray water park that is fun for all!

This park just got new play equipment and it's off the charts for a small park. They outdid themselves a good place to come if you have children or if you just wanna walk the trail around the park they also have a basketball court and tennis court. It is also the park that is the home to the Christmas... More

While it is small, it is very nice. Places for kids to play and a spray park are nice. Lots of shade trees with a walking path circling the park.

It was a warmer day than usual for February with no rain in sight. I brought my 85 lb. basset hound "lap dog" to the park for a walk.

Although it's not elaborate, Legion Park does boast a 1/2 mile track, plenty of squirrels, and shelters for people to rent. There is a spray park during the warm months and plenty of equipment for little ones to play on. If you are in need of a place to kill some time or are looking for a nice place to... More
