  • We came with my wife and daughter and had sensational. It is proud that there is a park so cute and well equipped in a historically neglected area. Beautiful gardens, grass and trees abundant and a lagoon artificial beautiful, where you can give a ride in boat by an amount very affordable. I would say that it is even better than the bicentenary. Insurance will go, although it left me pretty far.

  • Awesome! Picturesque, great for jogging, biking or just walking. Bring a picnic and some sunscreen! Some places to sit and some grass mixed in along the canal/lake. Note- No BBQ's or alcohol allowed. Open till 6 in the winter, till 9 in Spring/Summer. Take advantage of good on-site bathrooms and recycling on both extremes of the park. Some parking out front as well, but neighborhood not the best for leaving a car unattended. You will not believe the breathtaking views for sunset! :)
  • Great park for running, walking or spending the day with kids.

  • Very good Park. Personally I'd like to not be so "modern"; but it continues to be a good space in the neighborhood. The sunsets are welcome from this place.
