Stretching over 80 acres of open land, Veterans Park is the largest outdoor sports complex in Macomb, Illinois. One can almost always find a league or event happening at Veterans Park in the Spring and the excitement stays steady through the end of late fall. State of the art ball diamonds and numerous multi-use fields is not all it has to offer. Veterans Park also has a playground located next to the multi-use fields as well as over 1.7 miles of walking trails running through this beautiful park. Veterans Park also breathes of history as well. As the development of Veterans Park progressed and the scrub growth was cleared away a State of Illinois Archaeologist gleamed as he saw the east tree line for what it truly was. Estimated to be 125 years old, this tree line stands as one of the only remaining examples of an old hedge fence in Illinois. The earliest settlers would plant young hedge trees around the perimeter of their fields and as those trees grew they would intertwine, serving as a fence to contain their livestock within their farmland.
