We have walked thru the gardens many times - they are ok but nothing special compared to the GB gardens ....or the Madison gardens. Appleton needs to step it up! They need to put in public bath rooms...please !!

This building fit the bill! It is such a pretty building with beautiful views out every window. Most of the people at the shower didn't... More

This park was clean and beautiful. I couldn't beleive the children's play area was bigger than any park I have ever seen.
