Like the name suggests, this park is a tribute to President Grant. What makes it better are the statues and the view of Galena. It's not far from the Grant home and a perfect place to sit down and enjoy the day.

Many benches and shade, able to just sit and read with my dogs (mostly) sleeping on the grass next to me. Easy walk across the bridge to downtown shops. Really just a nice green space in a welcoming little town!
