This is an island in the middle of the city packed with fountains and sculptures, all made for you to crawl on or splash in. If your family is planning on going to the Art Museum, History Museum, or as your kids would say “boring” places, this is a place to go afterwards to let the kids play for an hour. No alcohol is allowed, but you can bring in a picnic and sit in the grassy areas for lunch.
It gets crowded during the day in the summer, especially on game days. Although it is surrounded by traffic, the landscaping and sculptures will keep the kids in the park, but it’s not the kind of place you can drop off the kids on their own.
At night, it is a great couples spot to watch the lights and walk through the fountains. There are great views of city skyscrapers and the Historical Wainwright Building is next to the park.
There is a wine bar on the edge of the park, so you can get a grown up lunch, or an emergency soda for the kids.
Even on crowded days I have been able to park on the street across from the park. I think most of the people are coming from the hotels or walking from other attractions.
I love the giant bunnies!
