The American Legion Park in Pinedale, Wyoming is a charming little hidden gem in the heart of this equally charming town and should not be missed during your visit.
Pine Creek runs alongside the park adding to the beauty of this natural setting. Relax on benches on the creeks bank and listen to the the water as it flows by. Travel down paved walking paths through the trees of the park. The kids/pets will have fun running around on the large grassy areas.
You can also play a game of horseshoes or have a picnic lunch at one of the covered picnic tables. There are restroom facilities and trashcans available for use at the park. Music events and festivals are also held here. Wildlife including moose, elk and mule deer are often spotted on the grounds.
An outstanding Veterans Memorial is also located in the park. The Memorial lists the names of all the people in Sublette County who have served in the U.S. military. A pair of beautifully sculpted eagles serve as the centerpiece of the monument.
The sculpture Path of the Pronghorn is located near the entrance of the park. Created by artist Georgia Bunn it honors the 2008 designation of the first federally protected wildlife corridor in the United States. The historical marker A Pause on a Journey can also be found here.
