City Parks
The beautiful native stone park entrances to Marquette's City Park were built
in the 1920's by local stone masons. They were donated by various
organizations in the community which engraved their names on the posts.

Swimming Pool
Marquette's City Swimming Pool is located at 5th and Lincoln.

Mushroom Rock State Park is a geological phenomenon of sandstone
spheres balanced on softer pedestals of sandstone. The power of erosion
weathered away the softer portions of the sandy rock. The spheres of the
naturally cemented portions of the sandstone are what we see today at this 5
acre park.

These rocks served as meeting places and landmarks for Indians and early
pioneers such as John C. Fremont and Kit Carson. The Smoky Hill wagon
train trail crossed in this vicinity and travelers would venture off the trail to
visit the rocks. Many interesting displays of artwork from days past are
recorded. Please do not add any of your own.

Picnic tables and a vault toilet are available, however, camping is not allowed.
Still, this spot is definitely worth driving out of your way to see.

Fees: Free
