Very spacious park featuring lawn bowling green (read the sign), children's playplace and splash park, walking/running trail, botanical gardens, basketball court, historical landmarks and more. The large area has enough room to offer visitors the ability to enjoy their own space. There are usually a handful of day-tents, joggers, small family gatherings as well as others using the park. It is a good medium between the prospects of free-range use and limitations for city mandated supervision. There are, very often, city workers around as well as mixed social groups that help to keep this area open and comfortable. As with the original mission of the park, there are dedicated restrooms near the splash park/play area open roughly from dusk till dawn. The spacious availability as well as the constant use by joggers/observers/families/nearby hospital and local venues keep this place active and safe. A great place to go if you're nearby.
This is a well maintained historic arboretum (1890s) used as a city park. It has good facilities to include a children's playground. It has very good gravel trails throughout which are popular with walkers and joggers.There is an increasing number of tent residents near the pond area. Some of the residents can be loud and aggressive, but most are not bothersome. Finding parking can be a challenge, but not if you're willing to walk a bock or two.
