  • Nice park that’s a few acres in space. Stuff for all ages and nicely kept. Believe they do live music in summer.

  • Summer open air music and food truck event was great. If you go bring some lawn chairs or blanket to sit on. The food options were plentiful and delicious. You could even bring your own picnic if you prefer. Finding good parking can be challenging but not impossible. I think these events are the first Friday evening if each month during the summer. We had a nice time with friends and family. The event was free except for the food and drinks we purchased. 👍🏽
  • Farmers' Market here is excellent. Plenty of fresh produce, flowers, pastries and breads from local shops, eggs, cheeses, meats...and a little bit of everything else. Great little diversion on a Saturday morning. I know they sometimes have other events here as well but I mainly patronize the Farmers' Market. Hot tip: there's a big parking lot off Morris St right around the corner....a very short walk away and much easier than hunting for street parking right next to it.
