  • It was a very hot afternoon when I visited the park which apparently is used by schools for art purposes at times. The exhibits change as well I gather. While there was nothing absolutely unmissable i...  more »

  • 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. Costco right next door to supply your picnics.
  • great park, ruined by wealthy families who live in the area who want to gentrify and turn park into their own public space. i was threatened here one time for taking photos on a weekend; a white man asked me why i was taking photos (landscapes of the park and sculptures), apparently it was some sort of family kite day, and i don't show faces, but i was threatened nonetheless because he was afraid his kid was in in somewhere and demanded to see the images on my camera, and asked for my id. this park is ruined.
  • Nice place for people who like art and will enjoy twice; to see the art and activities they always have in it, including nice place you relax in this park
  • Love this park! Great Art, shows, Plays and just a lovely place to relax at or get your creative juices flowing!
  • 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.
