We spent about 30 minutes at the park. It was a bit hazy, but still got to take in the beautiful views.

Funny story. There was a Dad and his 2 kids. The little boy was watching us. He noticed Caitlyn with her iPhone as she was taking pictures. The little boy tugged on his Dad’s shirt and said while pointing to Caitlyn, “Dad, Dad, Dad! That little girl has a phone. See? Why can’t I have one?” We laughed so hard at this. Love it!

I recommend anyone interested in American/Civil War History go to Point Park. I’d allow a 30 minutes to an hour to enjoy the views and read about the monuments. Don’t forget your camera!

Admission: $5 per adult aged 16 and over.
