This used to be a 👍place for family activity,but drugs have destroyed the park. When my daughter was young we could take family dinner to the and eat in the 🌹garden. Her father used to take her there to ride the swan ⛵.

Memorial Day weekend you could see the Art Float display. Very nice park for family gatherings, concerts, fishing, or just to relax and have a good time!

The only fee I know of is for use of the Rose Garden for weddings. Also there is a charge if the paddle boats are out. No other fees that I know of.
