We love this park so much. Only thing is they need restrooms. When we bring our grands someone always needs to potty and finding a restroom is very difficult.

Beautiful park! Good paved sidewalks, nice fountains, fish and ducks you can feed for a quarter, lots of benches in the sun or the shade. You do have to pay to park except on weekends.
beautiful perfect,. Good place to be with the family. And the beautiful canal with its beautiful lakes, there are also cultural presentations, food tracks.
