  • Great park with excellent walking path and a small creek that sounds amazing after a fresh rain. Also there are a handful of pokestops to keep you busy for hours!
  • Very nice garden for quick walks or runs. Great for family and pets. Lots of pokestops here as well.
  • Beautiful, well-maintained gardens with nice even walking paths and lots of shade. Great place to take a stroll or bring a picnic.
  • Immaculate, beautiful gardens. Accessible and perfect to stop in for a picnic, walk, or just a breath of fresh air. Plus lots of pokestops...
