“Fun place for a festival”
Reviewed October 19, 2012

They have a lot of free concerts and festivals over the year and it is a fun place. Parking can be an issue so use the bus if you can etc if you plan to stay awhile. Food/pizza festivals etc are big events here. It is also a nice place to grab a picnic from one of the nearby food places.

“spacious, and active”

This is a spacious green, and oasis for strolling in the center of a busy and high energy city. There are vendors lining the exteriors walkways. The green is also used for concerts and other activites.

“Beautiful Green but iffy loiterers”
Reviewed October 2, 2012

Beautiful Green but I would not take a walk inside alone. There are lots of iffy loiterers. Also near a bus stop with more loiterers.

“Ho Hum”
Reviewed September 22, 2012

There's not much to see here. On one side of the green, there is much greenery and it is a pleasant place to walk and sit. The other side of the green has little greenery, a large fountain with a flagpole and lots of sketchy people. Stay on the green side.

“AThe Green has many activities and great shops around.”
Reviewed September 1, 2012

Parking can be difficult, I like the bus. It takes me to my house and near the green. I'm not sure about Gateway's added traffic.
