  • I love this park. I always feel safe running here and I love the fact that they have water fountains for adults, kiddies and our furry friends. They also have clean restrooms which make this my go-to place to get in a workout.
  • Have been coming here since I was a child. Such beautiful grounds and a great little picnic area. Also when I went there was a man playing beautifully on a fiddle.
  • Beautfully packed with flora. Convenient layout to move between short walk and long walk. I wish they would post the names of the plants [and trees].
  • Beautiful and relaxing. Most of the guests were polite but had some get upset because we were in the background and we didn't know they were doing what photo shoot. Then they were getting upset because there were others walking through.
  • This park is just beautiful! Great paved walkways for strolling around and admiring the beautiful gardens. I love bringing my dog here for walks too.
