Stay away during the Country Fair weekend each year - thousands upon... More

Nice little park on the East side of Galena. You can picnic there or simply enjoy the view of Galena. There are a few pieces of playground equipment for the kids.

Despite the unseasonably cold weather for mid-November, Grant Park was a very scenic area, rich in photo-ops!
