Great place to just sit and enjoy life. It'd be nice if there were a dog park, or more seating to just sit and enjoy. I remember there being benches built into the park. But that was eons ago

Relatively small park, but has a pleasant water view. The park could use some better maintenance. Plenty of parking.

Small park on the river that has plenty of parking for free. Nice view of the river. Casual place to read a book, walk a dog or relax looking at boats going by.

The park needs o be cleaned up. The exhibits about Governor Printz are interesting when legible but many of the information boards need to be replaced.
