  • It was fun being at the park toward the end of the Christmas season. It is beautifully decorated. Many people were enjoying the festivities without it being too crowded. There are restrooms...

  • Nice open and wide park. Has a large grass area to hang out. A playground for little kids and two fountains that both allow you to walk in and cool down on a hot day. Great places to work out. Parking is convenient.
  • We loved the downtown experience and paths. There is so much to do and see, I would recommend taking an entire day to explore and check everything out. The fountain was really neat to see at night time and all the places we walked felt very safe and well maintained. Friendly for all ages and handicap accessible throughout. The city is very beautiful when it's all lit up at night! Many people were biking, roller skating, on scooters, and everyone was polite as they went by. There are many different places to park but they all have meters or if you choose a lot paying there. Highly recommend visiting.
