Located in the heart of historic downtown Jennings, this park is a tribute to the history and founding fathers of the city. Wrought iron benches, landxcaped brick patios, a fountain, and an antique clock are the perfect compliment to the 40-foot by 138-foot painted mural by artist John Zant. The mural depicts five different glimpses into the history of Jennings. The park is free to the public.
