Great place to walk around and have activities or not. Kids playing all over, adults enjoying themselves. Lot's of shade for a hot day and loads of places to eat.

Water play area, yoga on the deck, a small lake and a short running path. But best of all just a nice green space in the downtown to sit and relax.
