“Great Events at a Beautiful Location”
Reviewed June 4, 2014

Catch one of the outdoor movies, the summer-long musical, or a chowder cook-off in a beautifully landscaped park. Bring a chair and enjoy this with a view of the gardens, the naval shipyard, or the ships passing by. Great place for a picnic too!

“Great Park - Great Events”
Reviewed May 29, 2014

This park is very green and well maintained. The association also puts on events, almost year round. From yoga in the park on Tuesdays, to concerts, shows/plays in the evening, there is always something to do here, even if just sitting and enjoying the views.

The fruit trees were in bloom, and it was gorgeous. Obviously a well planned and well maintained property.

“A peaceful place”
Reviewed May 22, 2014

I stopped by in the spring with my daughter. The spot was filled with trees in full bloom along with fountains. It was still early so the gardens weren't full of flowers yet, but the trees were breathtaking.

It was a beautiful and relaxing spot to take a break.

“River view, summer movies & concerts, beautiful flowers”
Reviewed May 12, 2014

Perfect place to bring your lunch and enjoy the sun or a game of frisbee. During the summer, there are movies on the lawn, concerts on Wednesdays, and plays/musicals on the weekends. Shakespeare in the Park is not to be missed, and the whale statue is an icon to snap a pic with. Go out on the piers and watch the fishing boats and Naval Shipyard across the river. Catch the Sheafe House when it's open for some cool art and history.
