Great place to go for families with kids. We took the Skyride, fun ride and short (about 15 to 20 min). The views are so beautiful ! There was a festival and food trucks. Conveniently located next to downtown (walkable from any hotel or restaurant). We loved this park!

It's been a long time since either one of us has been here so we decided to visit again. There is such a variety of things to do here, we could have spent two days enjoying everything.

This is my second visit to the festival and it is amazing to go and enjoy the grandeur of every display and read it's meaning to the Chinese culture. My family was able to take in the show that demonstrates different aspects of Chinese culture. Beautiful and graceful culture and people. Lots to see and enjoy. You can eat before... More

We usually check out what is happening here. Last year we did the Chinese Lantern thing and that was great. Tickets might be a bit high for families but well worth the time and money. This is the heart of the city and helps remind us we are here on Earth to make a life, not just a living. Dwain... More

Took some family to the park for the first time (for them). The carousel was a big hit. You can walk all around the park and see some awesome stuff. The clock tower is pretty cool to walk too. There are ducks by the river you can see. And carousel is great for all ages to ride. This is a... More

We were downtown walking about and I had heard good things about this park. We walked over and much of the park was not accessible... Part was due to construction, part to a Chinese lantern art display that they wanted $15 per person to walk thru. We were disappointed in the amount of space, we went elsewhere to see more.... More
