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.

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
