  • What a great addition to the downtown area. Stood and ate my crab filled pastry in this park and it's a beautiful place to take a break from sightseeing. 
  • At one time Chinese made about about 2/3 of Astoria's population. The area history museums fumble on this and don't talk about it. Like it never happened. Like the laws that kept them out of jobs were never on the books. Like they never existed. But they were here. They lived here. They contributed to our society. They made this country a better place. How did they get here, where did they live, and what happened to them after they left? While these bigger questions are not answered, this exhibit does at least acknowledge that Chinese lived here, just like you and me. They suffered, they lived, and they loved, just like you and me. This corner of town is well worth a visit. A visit for more than a few minutes. A visit that allows time to contemplate and imagine what was and what could have been.
  • Lovely art. A wonderful place of beauty. A nice place to sit and think, right in town.
  • A drizzly visit to Astoria didn't mar the beauty and serenity of this small urban park. The plantings are new, but will, over time, undoubtedly enhance the atmosphere of this lovely public space.
  • Totally amazing park that everyone must experience!
