  • Definitely worth a stop for a relaxing walk around the river. It is a nice place to explore. Make sure to get to the Supreme Court building to check out the gavel statue and hang out in the swings  more »
  • Awesome views and a beautiful place to walk around or sit outside in nice weather. Very walkable area.  more »
  • A great small park! It's got lots of good places to sit, and it's on the bike path, so it's good for a quick walk. It's on both sides of the rivers, and the bridges have good pedestrian paths. I personally love the deer sculptures. It's right behind COSI, so it makes a great place to go after or eat packed food at. There isn't a big green space to play sports on or run around, but there are plenty of other parks for that. This park achieves it's purpose of being a nice place to enjoy time at perfectly!
  • It was a perfect evening for a stroll. Our son was on leave from the army, and it was a great place to talk and catch up. It was just beautiful and even had wonderful porch swings - great for a rest after a brisk walk.
