This is a nice place for a walk when visiting the nearby Country a Club Plaza. It's a big improvement over the old Brush a Creek. Lots of shops and restaurants nearby.

It's picturesque in it's location. But I try to avoid actually going down there. Sometimes it smells awful, and often, there are lots of homeless people camped out down there. Still, it's picturesque, just hold your nose

Brush Creek Waterway runs directly through the middle of the plaza. It is a nice sight to see, and is usually kept clean up and down the sides of the creek.

They did an outstanding job on last year's Water and Fire presentation, a beautiful evening complimented by an awe inspiring sight.
