  • We always love visiting The Forks. Great selection of food and merchandise, and it's nice to see buskers. 
  • Very nice park, lots of trees and green spaces sbd outdoor concerta. My only criticism would be the children's playstructure was not made of durable materials (plastic broken in some places). A great place to unwind and take in mother nature.
  • Great place to go for a walk and find out about some history as well
  • Nice public space
  • Good place for a walk
  • Great place any time of year.
