Interesting tribute to a European leader that lived 2000 years ago. Great views of the valley and city. Nice quiet park with plenty of picnic tables and play scrape for the kids.

“A Fun Historic Park”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed April 22, 2012

The park at the top of the hill is worth a stop when the statue is open. People can climb for a great view of the city below. There is also a nice playground area for children and picnic shelters to enjoy a whole day at the park.
