Find park activities here.

Veterans Park Playground

The playground equipment is standard but good-sized. It is a bit close to an unguarded pond, and you may want to take that into account when visiting with a toddler who may be a runner. Parents may want to position themselves on the bench between the playground and pond. The playground also has some drainage problems after heavy rains.

The Pond and Walking Path

A stroller-friendly walking path circles the pond and approximately a quarter mile. The “pond” is probably more of a storm-water runoff area not appropriate for swimming or pets. However, it attracts various water fowl, particularly geese, which the city is attempting to control. If you do see a nest with eggs, the City of New Brighton would appreciate a report.
