Grant Park is a nice little park to see. We walked thru here from our hotel on our way to the main street in Galena. Thought the park was well taken care of with some nice pieces of history and scenic views. Would recommend a stroll thru here if in Galena

If you are a history buff this is the place for you. The Blakely rifle fired at Fort Sumter is just incredible. Also the Spanish American cannon, the Union battery, and the WWI German artillery pieces are just amazing. I loved it and my family loved it too.

We wandered across the bridge into Grant's Park.. Great views of the city of Galena and some nice pieces of history to view. A quick walk from downtown if you want to get away from the craziness of the shopping crowd.

Grant Park is a brief walk across a bridge over the Galena River from the downtown area. We were able to enjoy an evening stroll after dinner.

This is a nice park. Not very big but has a nice playground for children. It is right next to downtown. We found it relaxing to walk through.

An elevated, very open and nice setting there was a biking and walking bath that the visitor center can provide a map of.

Checked out of hotel early and decided to walk the park. What a great find. Very enjoyable just sitting on benches and watching the train and people getting the dogs walked.

Samll-ish park with some statues and old canons. We walked around and read all the plaques - very nice walk, just not something I would make a point of seeing.

What can I say, other than this park is just gorgeous. We walked it multiple times every day of our stay.

Nice place to stroll and watch the canoes & boats below. Park offers great festivals, including the fall craft show! Beautiful place for pictures- families, senior pictures, weddings etc.
