Lots of folks walk their dogs here, water, trails, beautiful plants & trees to look at. It's near the zoo, easy to get to. We spent about an hour here just walking. There are some benches to rest on.

This is a great park. There is so much to see. We did the swan boats, and it was so much fun! We walked around the gardens, and it was so peaceful.

Awesome event. EXCELLENT food, wonderful variety and quality. Went to three different trucks and spent about $50. Worth it for the diversity!!!!! Pic- fish tacos from FuGo. Good but could have used some pico de gallo

Know by locals and visitors alike, this is a green spot with much character. Stroll down the calm paths and hope to see a bird or two as a break in your sightseeing.
