Long Description:
Established in 1998, the park was developed to call attention to the history and heritage of Leeds. The park was developed by grants and contributions over a period of years by a corps of historical society volunteers, Leeds garden clubs, the Tree Commission and the City of Leeds.
Located in the park is a memorial saluting the city's three Medal of Honor recipients as well as other Leeds natives who have served their country in the past. There is also and outdoor interpretive display on the old Fuller's Grist Mill, including a display of the mill stones from the grist mill that was once located on the Little Cahaba south of the park.
