General Patton Park WWII Tank

They installed a new playground five years ago that includes a zip line, pirate ship structure, dome swing, net climber and other equipment to climb or swing on. And the tank also makes for a fun climbing structure for the kids. Great place to picnic and play if you're in the area!

WWII Tank in General Patton Park

Great park for the kids to play and climb all over the tank. Nice place to picnic and let the kids get rid of some energy.

[Joan Gebhardt, 06/27/2014]

General George Patton and his wife lived in South Hamilton before World War II. The town dedicated the park to him, and the old immobile tank makes it harder for future yellow belly bureaucrats to come along and try to rename it.
