We have a very enjoyable walk through the park to reach the Zoo, it was very clean and the pathways were excellent to walk on, the little train running through was very entertaining. A very pleasant time was enjoyed by both of us.

My wife and I live 1m away from the park and have frequented it for years. The city has done a tremendous job at upkeep/renovation, thus adding a higher quality of life for residents around the park, and a greater experience for travelers coming from elsewhere. Trails, lakes, fountains, sculptures, monuments, exercise stations, access to the zoo and museum, and... More

Very nice park with lots of space to stroll and walk around at a leisurely pace. Lots of other places are close by. Great during fall and spring.

We had trouble finding parking due to Boo at the Zoo and some road closures but eventually we found one and had a fun time with our 6 kids. We did the train trip and hopped on and off. The kids wanted to try every single play piece! We weren't prepared for water play in the fountains.

This is a wonderful, huge park near the zoo. We took our four-year-old granddaughter. We parked in a parking deck near the medical center for $7.00 and walked to the playground area. There is a wonderful splash park and lots of playground equipment. The train ride is reasonably priced and we did not have to wait long. The cafe food... More

I greatly enjoyed my two walks here when I was able to escape a conference at Hotel Zaza and soak in some of the beautiful sights and smells of this park. A wonderful place for a stroll and very interesting too to learn about local flora and fauna.
