An amazing park to take a walk and see the many types of trees in memory of many heros. A big gazo to sit and rest. Endless sidewalks to breathtaking trees and areas.

Enjoyed this very much. A good break from people and to slow the pace. Especially enjoyable if you have interest or knowledge in horticulture.

This park was a little slice of heaven! Very tranquil, serene and peaceful! Loved all the trees from different States of USA and other countries. The memorial to Apollo 14 was especially moving.

Outside of Atchison lies acres of walkways, beautiful trees and aviation honoree names engraved in stone, at the International Forest of Friendship. I enjoyed walking around and finding names from my home state, people who have accomplished much in the aviation field. It's a peaceful,...More
