This is an oasis in the midst of the city. Basically it's a large water feature where water cascades down stepped walls into a pool. You can climb down huge, slab steps into the waterfall, but you don't get wet. It can be tricky if someone is going down and someone is coming up the steps at the same time. We came here to eat lunch as several other people were doing. There are places to sit down and just watch the water. It's not Niagara Falls but it is a nice place to sit and take a break.

This is a gorgeous area and it lends itself to perfect photo ops. Would be great fun for the kids, with all of the climbing spaces. Could be dangerous for little ones, would require good supervision.

What an amazing combination of fountains and water displays. Lovely spots for outdoor weddings as well as places to sit and meditate. Hard to believe it's right in the city. Parking can be sketchy.

I had high expectations after reading other reviews, but my husband and I were a little disappointed. It was nice for a stroll and a few nice pictures. I suppose our expectations may have just been too high .

Really a unique space. Artsy and unusual design of water fountains and water installations with plenty of places to sit and just listen or look. Note: this is not a place to let a young child run loose and unattended.
