Including a large baseball complex as well as a playground, picnic shelter, basketball courts, and restrooms, City Park is a wonderful destination for family fun and outdoor excitement. In addition, the park features a historical Nike-Hercules missile on display. As one of four batteries in the Twin Cities that was equipped with defenses in the event of a Soviet nuclear attack, this historical missile has informational signs attached to educate visitors.
