  • There‚Äôs just something about this place besides the history that was very special. I enjoy Franklin and make sure I stop here whenever I am in town. Thank you to the ones that are keeping it clean, the grass cut and maintaining the park!
  • I love this park. There is a ton of history all around Franklin, but the way they have the monuments set up and the detail is incredible. I also enjoy the way the walking trail is here too. You get a slight grade increase on certain parts, some of it feels like your walking in the woods on a paved road, and other parts are wide open. Definitely worth a visit if your visiting!
