City Park

category :
City Park The City Square Park is in full view to travelers on
the busy Highway 81 which passes on the west side
of the Square. To commemorate the new
millennium 2000 yellow tulips were planted in the
town square by dozens of local volunteers. Bursts
of color fill the park each year from these and other
flowers. The Square is the center of the annual
Swedish Festival, the display
of flags for Memorial Day and Veterans Day, and a
nativity scene during the Christmas season -- all
activities provided by volunteers. New evergreen
trees were added in 2000 and serve as a backdrop
for the nativity figures.

Many residents hope that, in the future, the Square will be a rest stop for travelers on the new four-lane
Highway 81.
