We came up to this park to get a great view of the whole city and we sure did! We loved watching the planes take off and land throughout the early afternoon.

Lovely park. Great views of the city. The formal gardens are very nice and there is conservation happening as well with replanting and of course lots of birds to see.

This is a beautiful place to walk around! Lots of trees and flowers, plus a great overlook of the city to take pics. The Jesus statue is beautiful and huge. It's a very peaceful place. There's also a nice coffee shop near the entrance.
