    Beautiful park full of gorgeous old trees, a duck pond, benches and tables, foot and bike paths. Landscape is lovely and relaxing. It's the prefect get away in the city. The trees are so large and old it does not feel like you're in densely populated area. Perfect place for a stroll, pick-nick, gathering, or just to unwind. There are vintage style street lamps along the paths that light up at dusk, very pretty.

    Beautiful w the proverbial duck pond for the kids to feed. Actually don't feed the ducks it only fouls the water. That being said .....There is a part of the park in which you can allow your dog to have fun playin w other dogs.or just throw him a ball. Lg. Park. ..lots of trails.....dog park......Large playground for the kids. Hey what more can ya ask for in a city park.

    Such an amazing neighborhood park. I visit it daily for exercise and absolutely love the big trees and awesome flowers. The paths are always clear and the park is well kept up. Lots of grassy areas to play ball and let the dogs roam.
