Small park with a pavilion used as a farmers market on Saturday’ and Wednesday. It is also used for food truck rodeos and other festivals. There are also concerts in the summer.. Great little urban site.

The park itself is quite small but on the weekends there is amazing fresh produce and once in a while, fun food truck fairs. even those are fairly small (think 10 minutes to walk through, 40 min if you're stopping often and eating).
