“See it from the car”
Reviewed 29 July 2013

The best views are from your car... there are usually some unsavory characters hanging out behind the stone wall in the evenings so make sure you stay on the midland avenue side of the park.

“Great Statues of Thoroughbreds Running and Mares and Foals”
Reviewed 29 June 2013 via mobile

Not the easiest place to park and see but it is a great concept. Normal wear and tear. We did not feel uncomfortable here as someone else did.

“okay park but bad location”
Reviewed 22 June 2013

We were looking forward to seeing this place and enjoying some time walking around. It turns out that it is kind of small and a bad location. We only drove by and decided not to get out. The horse statues however were impressive as you drive-by and was a good idea by the city.

“neat idea but doesn't seem to be passing the test of time”
Reviewed 8 June 2013

looks great from a drive by but on closer visit the granite is falling apart. so much so that one area of the park is roped off with caution tape. park is not that well maintained. disappointing to see a neat idea fall into disrepair.

“Great place to visit downtown”
Reviewed 6 June 2013

I've been meaning to go for a long time and finally took the opportunity this week. Stayed around for a while past dark to get some photographs and got some. Other photographers were there also and a few families came by too.
