It's a very pleasant walk on a warm summer day. You can get an ice cream cone and walk the park which is really a pleasant walk through the gardens and watch the ducks swim. Spend and hour or two and enjoy a nice summer's day.

This is a cute park close to downtown. There are ponds with geese, easy to walk trails, big fat squirrels. It's a nice green space to relax or take a stroll. There are plenty of historical markers around as well.

Congress park is a city gem. It doesn't matter the time of year it's always beautiful. Whether it's a stroll through the park, an afternoon picnic or just lounging around on a weekend afternoon, it's a special place.

Taking a stroll around this park on a sunny day made us feel like late 19th/early 20th century gentry. Wonderful way to spend a Sunday afternoon.
