We went to Grant park and walked around the multiple paths it has. We also looked at all of the fixtures and information it had. There was a pedestrian bridge that you could cross to get to the main street of Galena from the park. Lovely landscaping was an added plus. There is also a lovely view of the Galena River from the park.

Enjoyed the various artillery pieces from the Civil War and WWI that are on display in the park. Beautiful views of downtown Galena. Would have liked to have seen the old fountain working. The highlight is of course the statue of US Grant. The park gives off a very vintage feel, which makes it all that much nicer.

Make sure you cross the footbridge and spend some time sitting on the benches under the trees, studying the Galena skyline.

Park is well maintained and very beautiful. Good place to take a leisurely stroll and take a look at some historical pieces of artillery from the civil war.

Being from the south and a historical buff of the civil war I found Grant Park very enjoyable, nicely maintained, just down the hill from his home ( walk from his place "downhill" to the park). Have to get a kick every time I see on the monuments, " war of the rebellion" in the north. Sure don't see that on a southern monument. One of many nice places to visit in Galena, Illinois.
