We love strolling the walk way and watching the boats as they go by especially the ferry. We especially enjoy music in the park on Wednesday night in the summer. Pretty little park, close to shopping and restaurants.

We were able to listen to a live bluegrass band in the park. Charming scenes of my childhood. It is small and not a great park for other purposes, but fun for the local live music in the summer.

Went to the Wednesday night concert. Picked up pizza and then had a picnic while listening to some great music. An enjoyable night.
