For tourists, this park is too far from downtown (it'd take quite a while to walk up the large hill). But, if you can get a ride (or is there a bus?), it is super awesome! Good views, huge play area with jungle gyms and...More

The park is beautiful and has a great view. We had lots of fun on the huge playground which is complete fun even for grownups. There is even a little Zoo!

We visited after a heavy snowfall, so the park looked wonderful. There's a very complex playground, which unfortunately was very dirty & wet, making it a bit dangerous in the snow. The park is an ideal place for viewing the alps, & many runners passed...More
