Located on the Calusahathee River in downtown Ft Myers it is a quiet placewith a fountain and statues of the Friends, a playground and pavilion. It is mostly used for concerts and special.events, but is a nice stroll.

So the park itself is really nothing special. There is some art, a playground for kids, a few statues, a pavilion, volleyball court and a fountain. However, there are many things to do around it.

Want to relax... Just go to Centennial Park for the shade, the river, some great sculptures and a lot of nice people. The trees and the breeze usually break the heat. An evening stroll is very nice as are the "Three Friends" sculpture of Edison, Ford and Firestone. Relax and enjoy down town Fort Myers and include the park..

It's hot down there and really no relief from the hot sun. I'd prefer Lakes Park to this one any day. Just my opinion. Lakes Park is south and this park is downtown.

Friends from out of town wanted to see what downtown Fort Myers was like. They were impressed with what we have to offer. We walked the Park and the downtown area. So enjoyed it that they are planning on coming back again very soon. Go Fort Myers, keep visitors coming back.

This park is wonderful when there are festivities in the area. If you are here at any other time especially close to sunset, keep your eyes open for strange activity.

This riverside park is centrally located, a pleasant place to take a lunch time walk . Nicely maintained green space but not a lot of parking.

I got out of the car, and with little notice my son was mad he got right back in the car seat, because there was a nice sized convention of the homeless community in the park. Parking is under a bridge and thankfully there was only one used condom on the ground right in front of the park. Good Times

This park has upgraded over the years but still needs a makeover it is a better event spot than anything else but does a good job when one takes place
