Freedom Park - Military Might

This place has a couple of planes, a helicopter, a submarine, bombs, props, chain, anchors, guns, a landlocked Navy vessel, jets on sticks, etc. Almost all can be climbed on. Not the prettiest park, but who cares? The kids can climb and explore. Plenty of opportunities to take pictures.
