This park is downtown and frequented by sketchy crowds (drug dealers, homeless, etc.) There's often some activities (shows) happening and the city is trying to keep it clean and safe. Not the best place to go hang out in my opinion...

City Park is right by the hub of Bernard Avenue with street vendors, lots of restaurants, walkways, jogging, boating, beaches, beach volley ball, watermark for kids, playground and often outdoor music in the summer

Views all round. The cafes and bars are nearby. Well maintained park with waterfront boardwalk. And the best public washrooms anywhere.

By good luck we were there at a festival time so there was free musical entertainment happening plus the weather was good and the amenities were fine. Plenty of cafes and drinking holes nearby. Pleasant being so close to the water.
