  • The best urban park! I love all the climbing. It is really meeting gross motor skills development! It is also beautiful. I love seeing the skyscrapers peak through the trees. I also love that the park is segmented into various small, can keep your eyes on kids areas. Though I will also add it felt very safe.
  • Beautiful green space in the city. It allows you to get away from the hustle and bustle of city life for a little while. The children's park there is awesome. Almost everything is covered with shock absorbing material in case a young one falls. The multi use activity area is well designed. There can be a multitude of people there and kids can still run around and have fun!
