The park along Kelly Drive is beautiful and with the regatta it was extra inviting. The event was well planned and had great traffic control. The park has a grandstand made of field stone and wood, very inviting. The shores along the river are nicely maintained and inviting to just sit down and wtch these great colleges race against each other.
The people manning the event were polite and efficient, kept things in check and people moving along. The weather happened to be beautiful the first day and a little wet and over cast the next day, but the park was still very beautiful.
People on bikes seem to be the biggest hazzard, as they ride in all directions, with and against traffic and will ride too close to pedestrians and cars.
