    It is a new Park recommended, very beautiful. The landscaping is very interesting, with ramps and gardens around a lagoon. In spring, they flowering plants "Sun highlighted" and it looks incredible. In winter, it is ideal for watching the sunset. The trouble is that it is not as close to a Metro station.

    I had not had the option of going to this park, until this weekend we start there. As I was still thinking it's a place to go without sun, there is no shade, but as to grow the trees sure to be a good ride even with an unforgiving Sun. It is a quiet place, great family, care and good walking trails. It was difficult to find parking.

    Good Park, well-kept, clean, tidy. Still missing shadow because the trees are small and perhaps missing some more. It would be good to have places for a coffee or buy something to drink.
