  • A real gift to the neighborhood. Lots of activities take place there but it is worth a visit just to see the sculptures.
  • Excellent Family Market in Farmers Market on the weekends pretty much everything organic and of course if you're only low income and got snap assistance you can buy FDA approved snap only vegetables and produce get two for one that's a good deal it's the way the government and Congress have decided to make you eat healthier and you will get that kind of deal at the Farmers Market
  • we looked all over for a wedding venue, then this opened and my wife was hooked, the rates were beyond reasonable and it worked out beautifully, we were the first couple to use it for our wedding
  • Lived the art sculptures. There were homeless people here during the day but had no problems with pan handlers. Just took some photos and moved on. I would no go at night.
