My husband and I enjoy strolling along the pathways and sitting by the river when we visit Galena. Very peaceful.

“Grant Park”
Reviewed April 11, 2013

Don't miss a walk across the bridge to enjoy the view from the Park but go on...down to the river trail and to Otto's for breakfast, or straight up the hill to Grant's home. The park is neat, clean and perfect for young and old to stretch their legs or have a picnic.

“Historic Park”
Reviewed December 5, 2012

Neat to see the different era cannons and the over-river look to the downtown Galena area. Also checkout the benches as they are all dedicated.

“Solitude and History”
Reviewed November 17, 2012

While my wife shopped, I used the walking bridge across the Galena River and discovered Grant Park. I love history and the park offered a number of artillery pieces from various conflicts this country has been involved in with a placard describing each piece. It is a park where you can walk at your leisure and enjoy the surroundings. In addition the park offers beautiful views of down town Galena. There is a small playground for children, a band shell and fountain. I consider this place as one of the “undiscovered treasures” of Galena. I will make sure my wife visits this on our next trip to Galena.
