  • This is a nice place to sit on a sunny day. We have a local rock painting group that hide rocks at this location to be found.
  • It has interesting displays, but no grass. Also has no water fountains. It's basically just a corner histoic, cultural display. No comfortable place to sit and no bathrooms.
  • Nice place to sit and relax, let the kids run around a for a bit and find some painted rocks.
  • Really disappointing. What you see in the picture is all there is. Expected a lot more out of something with such a cool name.
  • Always a relaxing place to picnic... plus it has pokestops and a pokegym
