Great park to walk your dog

We love to take our dog here. Plenty of room to take him for a walk and not feel crowded with other people. It's free. Kept pretty clean. Location is great. It's beautiful.

The park itself is free, spacious and very pleasant. The zoo has gone down hill in recent years and isn't worth the price of admission, but spending an afternoon in the park in general is a pleasure

The park is huge, but it has little signage. We parked the car somewhere on the road and went to the rosarium. The rose bushes were not taken good care of. There is a great gazebo, so we took very nice pictures there.

This beautiful public park has so much to offer. It surrounds an enormous pond, and has trees, flowers, sculptures and interesting buildings. Take the time to ride the vintage carousel. Right next to that, you can ride a camel! (weather permitting) The Museum is a hidden treasure; great for a rainy day. The Botanical Center is a flowery oasis. We've... More

We brought our 2 grandchildren ages 6 and 2 to the zoo on a Saturday late in April. Many of the animals were not out or were not easy to find in their enclosure. Luckily there was good signage directing you to the building where the elephants were. We did get to see 3 elephants up close and the staff... More
