Freedom Park

  1. 1

Freedom Park is.35 acres small, but it is rich in history. It is Fenton's first park and it is the place where during the Civil War Colonel William Matthew Fenton had the soldiers practice their drills. It was also the town square when Fenton was founded in 1834 and used to have a wooden bandstand where the Fenton City Band would perform. It is bordered by West Shiawassee Avenue, West Elizabeth Street and Park Street. The park is always open and has no entrance fees. There are several benches to relax on, a picnic area, a war memorial and a gazebo, which was donated by Dennis and Gail Schaefer in memory of their fathers.
