It's just a park. It's has a couple monuments and a few cannons from various wars. Not much other than that to see that you won't find in any other park.

There is a good walking path here with great views of Galena but beware of mosquitoes. I was here towards the end of September and thought there wouldn't be many left, but I left with about 5 new bites!

My husband and I went on a nice little walk after dinner in the park. It was nice to walk across the bridge from downtown to the quiet and calmness of the park. We visited the cannons, fountain, and statues. We enjoyed it.

We enjoyed relaxing in this beautiful old park. The surrounding neighborhoods are worth exploring by foot

After dinner one evening in Galena we decided to take a walk and crossed the river on the pedestrian bridge and walked around Grant Park. Nice little city park with a statue of U.S. Grant, gardens and a band shell. A very nice stroll and very close to downtown Galena.

To make a long story short, my husband and I loved this park!! Views were amazing!! The historical facts about the cannons and the WWl weapon were interesting!! If we could've walked further and had the time we would have. Maybe next time.

It is a nice stop. Several cannons from several wars with a nice view of "downtown" Galena. The grass was very green. The only part I didn't like was that I was there in the morning and there was no concrete walkway that went directly to the cannons and my shoes got wet walking in the grass but it was... More
