  • Many folks sleep in this treeful park downtown, because it is lovely and near homeless services. But drug raids are frequent, and crime abounds. As parks go, you have better choices in the evening, un...  more »

  • Best Farmers' Market in the U.S. in my opinion! Goes from June until October 8am told 2pm and if you plan to attend, go early in the morning because it gets very crowded and it's difficult to get up to the vendors tables. There are always plenty of dogs and strollers and when it's crowded it becomes difficult to navigate. Plan to walk, there is free parking to be found, but there's also plenty of paid parking. Veggies, breads, Cheeses, salsas, many ethnic food trucks. Also, artisans, performers, musicians, it's a great time! So much more, no admission fee! A must see and do!
  • There are many homeless people basically living in this park. Not that that is a "bad" thing but the park can't support homeless people. So it stinks like urine and poop... there's drug paraphernalia all over. It's not a place for young children as they're more likely to see a mentally unhealthy homeless person do something inappropriate at this park. There's a lot of trash laying around everywhere. There's a lot of vandalism... It is what it is. It's a good dose of reality. It's too bad it's right in the downtown area.
  • Good parking. Quiet. Expect the port-o-potty bathrooms to be occupied with people who take a while. Homeless enjoy sleeping here at night.
  • Homeless population is evident, bathrooms are never available for use. Not the best place for a family picnic... But there are some good outreaches done by local groups and churches looking to help those in need.
  • Physically it is a nice park visible on all sides but currently used in conjunction with the open air drug market the police heard around the nearby shelters. Any time of day you can find used needles, passed out addicts, or the preceding activity
