This large park hosts a public pool and golf course, great play structures on either side of the park and best of all a wonderful memorial to veterans. Free parking, no admission fee (except for the pool and golfing)

This is one of the top 5 Memorials that I have seen. Easy to get to with plenty of free parking. A short showing of what each conflict went through was very well done.
