“I wish I was there in the summer”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed November 25, 2012

I could have hung out here all day. It was nice on a sunny November afternoon. I could only imagine how nice it would be in the Summer. This would be a great place to rubber neck and people watch.

“Nice Open Park in Center of City”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed November 24, 2012

You'll find locals walking their dogs, playing frisby, jogging, and enjoying the day. Very pretty greens and foliage, squirrels, birds, simple nature tucked away in the center of town.
