Close to downtown and offers free outdoor concerts in the summer and various art and music events throughout the year. Beautiful landscaping and a great location for a wedding or photos.

The park is so peaceful and the gardens were in bloom the bees were dancing on the flowers. They have paved paths all over the place so it's very easy to wander and enjoy the sites.

Needed a place for the children to scream, run, and climb without limitations. Plenty of space, green grass, and climbinf structures. There are restrooms on location and plenty of seatinf and tables for parents to sit back and observe.

Nice park in a nice part of Lawrence. Easy to find, and parking was easy enough to find in the morning. Nice for a peaceful stroll.
