I walk in the park almost every day. It is usually very peaceful. At times there are classes taking place or other activities going on - just have to plan accordingly. It is very clean and very welcoming. Very enjoyable!

This park is great for an afternoon walk/jog, lazing in the sun, or sightseeing around the museums. So picturesque that it is the go-to venue for local Homecoming and Prom pics twice each year.
