  • Fun place to visit and walk along the river and see the shops and restaurants.
  • 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
  • Interesting place to spend a weekend with family!
  • Nice public space
