  • WHATS NOT TO LOVE ABOUT THIS PARK?! I’d cut class just to go walk i here and stare at nature. Super calming, unless there’s a crazy exhibit going on, which regardless always entertaining. U can even enter with your dog. I came to this park as a little girl and grew up always going there. They have 3 statues from the early 90s in the beginning of the Park STILL TO THIS DAY!!its amazing .
  • Great place to introduce your kids to art and ideas without making it seem like you're forcing anything on them. The farmer's market here is a perfect excuse to come engage with art in a beautiful park right on the water. There's also a Costco right next door, if you need paper towels and stuff.
  • Awesome Art lives here. Awesome park. Great for families
  • I had a night there upon my bicycle tour late fall 2009. Riding down highway 100, hwy 7 heading for New York City. Now I arrived at New York, living for a week at my friend Karen's home at Astoria. She has been showing me beauties from her home town. I appreciate, she showed me this clean park with a lot of introductions tables. A wonderful green playground for kids. A stroll way for adults in a big city.
  • Incredible place dedicated to providing free culture and entertainment. A park that schedules programming with an adult audience in mind. So many events and weekly and daily opportunities to engage. Yoga, movies, performances, kayaking. Most parks are for children, and while this is a child friendly park, It's nice to see a place for adults to have free fun.
