  • Always a lovely time to be had for the whole family. I attended a very lovely memorial service for a beloved member of the downtown/LES community in this park, and it was a lovely place for locals to pay tribute to such a memorable soul. It was--and is--lively, a beautiful Fall day. So nice that there are so many places and ways to remember people we love here...sending love Caroline.
  • Great park with amazing vies, the park is really clean so don`t worry about your pets or kids. The playground for the kids is great, this is there paradise. You can walk or run there. I like to run there early in the morning, there not that many people so the atmosphere is relaxing. Around in this area you can find really good coffee locations.
