"Small Jewel"

Named for its acorn-shaped pavilion, the Acorn Park is a city park that was originally built by Francis Preston Blair in 1840. It was part of his estate and contains a spring with water containing mica, that gave it a silver color. This 'silver spring' in fact led to the city being named after it! A tiny park, just 0.12 acres (0.0485623 hectares), the Acorn Park can easily go unnoticed amidst the tall building surrounding it. There is an artificial cave here, as well.
