In this relaxing 6.5-acre park, there's a stone-and-bronze fountain designed by local sculptor Hoss Haley, and the Zebulon Vance Monument honoring a North Carolina governor. Princeton elms, London plane trees, black gum trees, and hornbeam trees provide shade. At the eastern edge, in Roger McGuire Green, is Splasheville, a large fountain (open daily 9–9 mid-April to early fall) where in warm weather you'll see hundreds of kids, and even some adults, playing in the water.
There's also a stage lined with colorful tiles by local ceramist Kathy Triplett, a grassy amphitheater, and a veterans monument.
