No name park, Bement

On the way to Arthur today we stopped at this great little park in Bement. I couldn't find a name for it, but if I were to hazard a guess I'd call it Veteran's Park.
The equipment was new, the park was wonderfully shady, and the porto-potties were clean.
There was a shelter and lots of old playground equipment too. There were swings and a simple old merry go round. My son loved running and hollering in the shelter.
There was lots of lawn for running and a generously sized sand box.
Bement has several family restaurants and a pizza place, so next time we go I'll plan to stick around for dinner.

Thank you for your kind words regarding the park in Bement, IL.

I live right on the park, and have only heard it referred to as "Bement Village Park", or the "small park" as there is a larger park (county forest preserve) at the northeast corner of town.

The veterans' memorial in the Bement park is a big deal (for a town of 1800 people) so calling it Veterans Park sounds appropriate as well.

Please come again!

No problem, we enjoyed our time there and will definitely come back.
