For anyone tempted to take a detour and visit this area, skip it. Unless you are into the nostalgia of the Sunsphere (which is showing its age), there's really nothing here but your standard fare of a fountain (very nice), playground grassy picnic spot, ampitheater and waterfront area. Although the area is decently maintained, it needs the excitement of a convention center event or outdoor festival to make it come alive. From what I learned from the locals, that only ahppens acouple times a year (that is, way too infrequently). Leave this for the locals to enjoy.
