Kearney can be proud of this great city park. The grounds are incredibly well maintained. There are a lot of family activities to do in the park and it’s located along the City trail system.

This park is truly a genuine beauty. The tower is fantastic and has plenty of spaces for get togethers for family and friends. Has a nice spot around the gazebos as well.

Kayaking is available on the canal during irrigation season and a little beyond. That is the most fun, kayaking down the canal. A very popular activity in the summer.
