Major Palm Park provides plenty of space for sunny play and features a spot for playing softball games. Major Palm also has a play area with a merry-go-round, swing and equipment for kids who like to climb. At the entrance to the park, a plaque pays tribute to the park's namesake, Major Willard G. Palm. Palm died July 1, 1960, when a Soviet MiG fighter shot down the Air Force RB-47 he was aboard. The plane was on a peaceful reconnaissance mission over the Barents Sea, outside of USSR airspace when it was shot down. The heart of the park sits back from SW 37th Street.
