|Monument dedication to Nathaniel Lyon at the park|
- Named for Nathaniel Lyon, who was the first Union general to die during the Civil War (1861).
- Park consists of two ball diamonds, walking trails, and statues. Not surprisingly, they are mostly used by Anheuser-Busch employees.
- Lyon Park is 10.92 acres.
- The park was dedicated in 1869, under the condition from the government that they build a monument dedicated to Lyon. The monument was eventually dedicated in 1874.
- There is also a monument with Gen. Lyon on horseback at the northwest corner of the park.
The United States Arsenal, while historic, is still being used as a U.S. Air Force facility. It is used for mapping purposes. Unfortunately, it is restricted. Some of the buildings that were used during the Civil War still exist.
