The Park Nestled in the Trees
At the corner of North Washington Avenue and Sherman Street, you’ll find the very pretty Memorial Tree Park. Nestled among the trees, you can enjoy a meal or snack at one of the picnic tables (some covered), and kids can play on the swings.
Memorial Tree Park also has a sports field, open to anyone who wants to play a fun game of baseball or softball.
A nice feature of Memorial Tree Park is the benches that overlook Lincoln Lake. The view is beautiful in the summertime and spectacular in the fall, when the leaves change from green to vibrant reds, oranges, and yellows.
At the intersection of US-10 (Ludington Avenue) and N. Washington Avenue, travel north on Washington, past Bryant Road until you reach the end–Memorial Tree Park will be on your right at the corner of Sherman Road.
