The is a great place to relax and take time to enjoy the gardens and a little breeze by the water. The garden area has a trio of fountains surrounded by lovingly tended formal gardens. I sat on one of the benches while waiting for my husband to meet me and enjoyed people watching, listening to the sounds of the... More

I've been coming here since I was little its always been beautiful. There is always concerts or festivals going on in the park. Even if nothing is going on its good to go for a walk or have a picnic!

Short walk from downtown. Lovely little oasis with beautiful flowers. Nice place to take family or wedding pictures. Close to the water.

Catch one of the outdoor movies, the summer-long musical, or a chowder cook-off in a beautifully landscaped park. Bring a chair and enjoy this with a view of the gardens, the naval shipyard, or the ships passing by. Great place for a picnic too!

This park is very green and well maintained. The association also puts on events, almost year round. From yoga in the park on Tuesdays, to concerts, shows/plays in the evening, there is always something to do here, even if just sitting and enjoying the views.

I stopped by in the spring with my daughter. The spot was filled with trees in full bloom along with fountains. It was still early so the gardens weren't full of flowers yet, but the trees were breathtaking. It was a beautiful and relaxing spot to take a break.

Perfect place to bring your lunch and enjoy the sun or a game of frisbee. During the summer, there are movies on the lawn, concerts on Wednesdays, and plays/musicals on the weekends. Shakespeare in the Park is not to be missed, and the whale statue is an icon to snap a pic with. Go out on the piers and watch... More
