    There really wasn't much going on for a weekday. It's a nice area with paved walking paths. Unfortunately there were numerous locals just hanging out which doesn't make it overly inviting for visitors...  more »

    We enjoyed the sculpture, clock, bridge, and watching people paddle through the area. There were plaques that gave us useful historical information.  more »

    There is a gift shop (also with inexpensive gifts) and a few a few bars and eateries. The most interesting place is the shop for used LP BB´s, tapes and CD BB´s (directly beside the gift shop).
