  • Few cities can boast a pristine river bisecting their community. Even fewer can claim usable space along the banks of that river. Credit forward thinking planners and citizens for funding continuing.....  more »
  • We went ice skating on the ice ribbon and went for an adventurous walk. Lots to see. Beautiful views of the city and one of the prettiest rivers and waterfalls in the country.  more »

  • Safe and beautiful! The carousel is very elaborate and a local favorite for families! I loved the artistic details. Electric scooters were available. Much of the paths are wheel chair accessible. The views are very nice, cable cars on one side, and carousel on the other. You can spend most of your day here in the park enjoying the great outdoors'!
  • Still a pretty good place for inexpensive 'date days'. There's plenty to walk and see that is free! (Hint, guys: always a great option!) Also a wide variety of fun things to check out or do, for small fees. If you're on the other end, take a walk through the River Square mall - but bring a bank loan!
