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.

Thie park overlooks the Galena River, the town and the railroad tracks. It has a pedestrian bridge and includes a gazebo, fountain, cannons, a statue and lots of benches to take in the views.

This is a smaller, self guided tour of statues, cannons, etc. Very nice. If you are there anyway, walk through.

A nice and green park in the center of the city with good displays and lot of free area to stroll. Access is easy and is not very crowded. It has some military equipment on display along with a statue of Grant.

We used the park most often after dinner to walk off a few calories in the cool of the evening...walking along the levee taking in the sights in town. However, it is also worth taking a spin around the cannon and monuments.

After being on crowded main street this is a nice break. Has lots of history and the kids liked all the cannons. A nice place to relax and take in the view. Lots of benches and very well taken care of.
