Being the first visit, I didnt know what to expect. I was pleasantly surprised with this park and enjoyed the swings that overlook the river. It was brisk and chilly, so I cant say I "enjoyed" being out too long, but the views of all the bridges was truly unique. As you walk along you progress beyond the ballpark and beyond the convention center and get a bit into the "city". I felt a bit uneasy as it was dusk and so we turned around. There are bridges that you can walk on pedestrian walkways, but being from a different city that you are "always looking behind your back" I didnt want to venture out on a bridge at dusk and then not be comfortable with my situation. So I cant say how "single person or family friendly" it may be especially when there are not many people around. I did not see any enforcement officers or policemen....and that just could be becuase there is no problem in this area.
I would come again, and if I lived in this area it would be a great place to come daily and just enjoy the view.
Plan on sunset - fantastic pictures.
The best part of the place involves the signs about all the old steamboats - wow!~ Take your time to read them and understand the history of the area.
I would rather have visited during a warmer day and earlier in the day for the sign reading as it was "in the shadows" and not conducive to standing around.
