  • This is a great place for a leisurely walk to enjoy nature and the river. The vista changes with the seasons. Some places to sit and relax.  more »
  • It looks nice, but we went after our conference and the large homeless population really made some in the group uncomfortable. Do not think of it after dark. Glad we made it back before sunset!  more »
