It is in the center of the old Town and apart from the funny thing it is very fun to look at the Whirligigs a unique park that you should see!
What an amazing little gem. Beautiful park, benches where you can sit and enjoy the amazing whirligigs. Nice signage at each display. Very clean, nice restrooms on site. They appear to be preparing to open shops across the street in a beautifully renovated building. Can not wait to go back.
Such a unique park, definitely a must see if traveling, and a weekly staple if you're local! So beautiful and peaceful. Within walking distance to restaurants and retail, across from 217 Brew Works and Whirligig Station.
