This is our 'first' city park and it covers the area of four downtown city blocks. At the southeast corner is a beautiful plaza with a carillon/clock tower surrounded by cool pools and another nearby "creek" style fountain with stair-stepping falls - all of which are quite wade-able by small children. There is a frequently used bandstand/stage for concerts. On weekends from Spring to Fall, the Vancouver Farmers Market occupies the west side of the park and side street. Its a very nice way to spend a Saturday morning with the family.
