The park, honoring President (and former Vancouver, Washington resident) Ulysses S. Grant, was acquired by the city in 1922. The park is contiguous with the grounds of Grant High School. That park is 19.9 acres in size. Amenities include a large playground, dog park, athletic fields, walking paths, picnic facilities and tennis courts. 
Beverly Cleary Sculpture Garden for Children
The Beverly Cleary Sculpture Garden for Children was dedicated in the park on October 13, 1995. Funded by donations from Cleary fans, the park was built by the Friends of Henry and Ramona. It includes life-sized renditions by local sculptor Lee Hunt of three Cleary characters: Ramona Quimby, Henry Huggins, and Ribsy (Henry's dog). The life-sized sculptures were created using vintage clothes on wax models to create a realistic feel. The sculpture of Ramona is dressed in raincoat and boots, with a joyous expression, and is positioned such that she splashes in the garden's fountain. Granite tiles placed around the sculptures are inscribed with quotes from her most famous books.
