  • This is a great place to take a walk. The Atmosphere is great and the sites help calm a busy day. You can come and eat or shop at the local shops, Sit and look at the lake, walk around and catch loads of Pokémon, Lay out and get some sun. Thursday nights is also food truck night. I would give the place 5 stars but I have not seen any new things added to the park in awhile. Otherwise its a great place to visit. A kids play ground would make this place great. I think it doesn't have one to give a more adult/college student feel.
  • Nice place to walk bring your dog good exercise for all, a lot of shade trees and park benches. The Black Dog is a nice place to sit and talk with friends. Food Truck Thursday offers a variety of foods and a different band plays every week.
  • Beautiful duck pond on North Monroe. If you live in Tallahassee and haven't spent some time here, go now! One lap around the lake is a little more than half a mile. Lots of Muscovy, Pekin, Mallard, hybrid ducks and Canadian geese. There was one wood duck who lived here for a few months last year, but I haven't seen one since he left. Herons, cranes, cormorants, pigeons, turtles and squirrels are almost always here as well. Pretty fountains and rose bushes, lots of swings, benches and live oaks. Bathrooms are cleaned frequently. I love it here.
  • Love Lake Ella and the local shops located there. Good for a nice serene walk/ run or just to take the kids to enjoy the ducks/ geese or turtles there!
  • I love this park because most the patrons are friendly and the wildlife is great. Awsome place for kids to play and enjoy. Picnic areas are clean.
