This is a lovely little downtown park that offers views of the river. This is a good place for a stroll, there are snacks and activities available for kids, and there are often interesting events held here, from yoga to live music to cultural events.

This place is full of shady benches. Miles of walking/biking trails in each direction. Water play area and loaded with children playing on the hot day we were there.
