This park just got new play equipment and it's off the charts for a small park. They outdid themselves a good place to come if you have children or if you just wanna walk the trail around the park they also have a basketball court and tennis court. It is also the park that is the home to the Christmas... More

While it is small, it is very nice. Places for kids to play and a spray park are nice. Lots of shade trees with a walking path circling the park.

It was a warmer day than usual for February with no rain in sight. I brought my 85 lb. basset hound "lap dog" to the park for a walk.

Although it's not elaborate, Legion Park does boast a 1/2 mile track, plenty of squirrels, and shelters for people to rent. There is a spray park during the warm months and plenty of equipment for little ones to play on. If you are in need of a place to kill some time or are looking for a nice place to... More

Very nice park for walkers/runners and a nice playground for children. Paved walk around the park is 1/2 mile, so it is easy to walk as much or as little as you choose. Beautiful large trees.

There is a 1 mile track that goes around the park. Plenty of squirrels to watch play. There is a waterpark for kids to run through the water. There is 2 shelters that can be rented. Really need to do it rent them months before your event. Plenty of trees to keep you shaded and a nice playground for children.

We have rented the pavilion for years and years and is perfect for get togethers. They just started charging ($25.00) last year but well worth the money. The parks person was pleasant and helped when requested. The pavilion is always spotless and the rest of the park is beautiful. I recommend these shelters for any event.

Legion Park has an excellent, flat paved path ideal for walking or jogging. The old trees and green space allow for a refreshing balance to recharge the battery. The squirrels are plentiful, and friendly (because they are well fed by the regular visitors). The dragon water feature is fun for kids (June-Aug), as is the partially ada friendly playground.
