Garner Park is an interesting blend of physical and social landscape. The greater part of its forty-two acres rises along a knoll to an overlook, where the award-winning Garner Shelter has been built. Patrons use this unique facility for picnics and social gatherings of all variety. Annually, the park is home to a Soap Box Derby, and Opera in the Park, a free community event. In the warmer months, the park becomes a popular site for recreational activities, especially soccer. While in the winter months, attractions include ice skating and hockey rinks. Furthermore, its location at the junction of Mineral Point and Rosa roads makes Garner a convenient stop for those living on the west side.
