"Nice little park"

While it is small, it is very nice. Places for kids to play and a spray park are nice. Lots of shade trees with a walking path circling the park.

Grew up at this park. Love the 1/2 mile walking track. They are installing new playground equipment now.

It was a warmer day than usual for February with no rain in sight. I brought my 85 lb. basset hound "lap dog" to the park for a walk.

Although it's not elaborate, Legion Park does boast a 1/2 mile track, plenty of squirrels, and shelters for people to rent. There is a spray park during the warm months and plenty of equipment for little ones to play on. If you are in need of a place to kill some time or are looking for a nice place to... More

Very nice park for walkers/runners and a nice playground for children. Paved walk around the park is 1/2 mile, so it is easy to walk as much or as little as you choose. Beautiful large trees.

There is a 1 mile track that goes around the park. Plenty of squirrels to watch play. There is a waterpark for kids to run through the water. There is 2 shelters that can be rented. Really need to do it rent them months before your event. Plenty of trees to keep you shaded and a nice playground for children.

We have rented the pavilion for years and years and is perfect for get togethers. They just started charging ($25.00) last year but well worth the money. The parks person was pleasant and helped when requested. The pavilion is always spotless and the rest of the park is beautiful. I recommend these shelters for any event.

Legion Park has an excellent, flat paved path ideal for walking or jogging. The old trees and green space allow for a refreshing balance to recharge the battery. The squirrels are plentiful, and friendly (because they are well fed by the regular visitors). The dragon water feature is fun for kids (June-Aug), as is the partially ada friendly playground.

Good park, not the best in town but has a water park area, and not very crowded, compared to other parks, on the older side.
