Postal card perfect!

Great place for a picnic or a quick walk. You will get the perfect picture with the Downtown in the background.

I think it is the 2nd weekend in October they have a big country fair in Grant's park. Lots to see and eats, music and a lot of items to see and buy. It is worth the trip to see.

I love to spend time in Grant's park. It is a quiet place most afternoons to read a book, enjoy the fountain, or just enjoy the view.

Took some great pictures. Nice park over looking the river and the historical down town. It was a short walk. There was a nice walking bridge where you are over the river, would go and visit again.

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.
