  • Great inner city park! The zoo the museum of natural science are wonderful. Going to Miller Outdoor theater is free. This area is huge. A nice golf course. Different areas for just being in the park. All right in the middle of the museum district as well as the medical center. I have been visiting here since I was very young and have great memories of this area.
  • Beautiful park, clean , serene, u get to see ducks walking close by, u can sit on any bench and read a book, Love the Train Ride, Conductor and all the park staff in offices very friendly, recently the Kite festival was awesome. Enjoyed it. Parking is limited but somehow u get to have a spot either on road or in the parking lot. Metro train station is close by. There are a lot fun places near by to visit.
