  • We attended Earth Day and learned about birds and really enjoyed the Native American participation. It is nice to have activities and a clean area.

  • Such a lovely place for all ages honestly. No matter the weather there’s always something to do. Whether you’re feeling productive or chill, the area is perfect for sitting and just enjoying a meal. You can watch as the world continues to move while you’re taking a couple minutes to rest. You gather your energy while around you, a dog runs after a squirrel while still attached to their leash, or the girl who is on a picnic is taking pictures, or hearing the rings of the bicycles that you can rent a few blocks away. So much is going on and it’s so liberating knowing other people are out there doing their own thing and living their own life. It could be a perfect day
  • Family, date, friends, tourist all wrapped up in one. Such a fun filled environment! People are so friendly in the green. Food trucks are available, plenty of open space for ball toss, nice soft playground for children and the water spouts for free water fun! The kayaks after super cute! Live music, it's just great for any occasion and ambience
