Park - Donated land over 92 years ago has been the core of a tranquil,
green environment in the center of Glendale. While Glendale has a
population of over 200,000, this park is the thread that perpetuates
Glendale's small town feeling. Summer band concerts and festivals enhances
the park's feeling of community.
