Take the time to stop and ponder what life would have been like when all of this was built...This is a terrific location to get some history and to get away from all of the traffic of the shoppers

The park is very clean, has parking and trails. It is near the old train station and across the river from the main part of the city. So great photo opportunities.

This park is a great place to take a stroll or just sit on a bench and watch the river and town. In summer the fountain is flowing and landscaped with flowers all around. There is a small park below for younger children. There is...More

Would definitely recommend a walk along the river here! We ate our lunch on a park bench in the sunshine. Lots of folks out for a walk or just being outside!
