Legion Memorial Park is designated as a National Historic Park Site (one of six in the state of Nebraska). The granite and limestone building structures were part of the Works Progress Administration projects of President Roosevelt. The material used predominately throughout the park was the red granite boulders found in Nemaha County quarries. The park is home to the city’s swimming pool and features a bandstand, picnic shelter, tennis courts, basketball courts, and an area for skate boarding. The gazebo offers a beautiful setting for relaxing. A rock creek dissects the middle of the park for rain drainage. The rock bridges originally designed to accommodate horse and buggy, are still used by the pedestrians.
