The weather cooperated. The major weather cell stayed away and allowed us to experience the history, the rivers, river paddle boat, fountain, the skyline. Only draw back is parking. Spent 90 minutes here.

A nice big open area for walking around featuring a large fountain right near the point. The old blockhouse was open with someone inside telling visitors about the history of the fort & the point which was nice.
