“pretty disappointing”
1 of 5 stars Reviewed June 29, 2012

Overall disapppointed in the area. It was pretty dirty and run down. I have been to very nice inner city parks/river front areas and this is not one of them. My kids couln't believe I took them there.

“In the city.”

This is a great place to go alone or with family or friends. Its downtown. It is in walking distance from hotels and residential areas. Just love this place and you can fish here.

“Love the bike path”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed February 26, 2012

Love the bike path, it's too bad this is such a sketchy place for homeless camps. Riding a bike during the day is probably OK, best to take someone else. Watch the mud in the creek, can be nasty and tide comes in fast.
