It is quiet and peaceful to walk around the park. The walking path around the park is fine with a view of the river all the way around. Some damage to the sea wall since the last hurricane but repair is underway. A beautiful spot.

This is a really nice park to walk around and enjoy the weather. It's really romantic at night, too. The river is quite nice and relaxing and you can sometimes see animals in the river.

Large city park located near interesting number of resturants, bars and shops. Parking is somewhat limited but worth finding. Lots of people in evening and on weekends. Safe and full of young families and older people. Nice place to take a break.
