Beautiful park.

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.

Enjoyed the visit. Loved the gazebo - the fountain. Great view of Galena. Walking bridge was a great view and easy access to Main Street and all the shops and attractions.

A beautiful city park, very scenic. I enjoyed the cannons and monuments that were part of the park. This would be an excellent location for a picnic. Over looks the Galena river and the city. Very pretty.

We took an evening stroll over the bridge after dinner. The park is a nice tribute to Grant and some of the cannons used throughout history. It had a beautiful overlook of the entire city of Galena and is an excellent location for a family picnic or event.

A lovely space with a pergola and captured German guns from World War I, along with a statute of Ulysses S Grant, "Our Citizen" as the town folks labeled him.

We took a stroll along the river and had a Picnic overlooking Galena. There is a statue of General Grant, a couple of canons, but nice to take a few minutes off.
