We stopped here while walking downtown. The crosswalk to get here is dangerous as there is no signal though. The park is small but beautiful and they were going through renovations while we were there.

This park is the crown jewel of this fine little mountain community in my opinion. The location is superb and there are frequent activities. We enjoyed the Sunday evening band concert when we were there. Every small town would be envious of this find.

Parking was sparse, so you will want to go earlier than the afternoon. We didn't see picnic spots, but maybe we missed them. Worth a stop!

The whole village is full of charm. The park adds to the village picturesque landscape. Few statues, with similar style are visible also in the park and on the Main Street. Worth sitting there for few relaxing minutes

The village has little shops and restaurant's of all varieties. Beautiful flowers mark the entrance to Memorial Park. There is an elegance to the park and village that makes it so inviting.

This is a nice park on Main St in downtown Blowing Rock, adjacent to the shops and restaurants. Not too big, but a pleasant spot for a break or a short stroll. Lots of benches and especially good for families with children, with lots of...More
