One of our older parks, Les Gove Park was dedicated in 1966 and was named after the former Auburn Mayor Les Gove. The 20-acre park has rolling mounds and meadows with 100 cherry blossom trees given to us from our Japanese Sister City, Kasugo, Japan. In addition to the amenities listed above, the park boasts a baseball field and bocce courts.
