This is a large park at the end of the riverside walk. There are activities for children and adults including a community boathouse. There are portable toilets but unfortunately nowhere to buy food or drink.

Cute place.. but extremely boring. Unless they have some type of activity going on there is nothing to do here, Only a Subway close, nothing else. pretty view and a place to bring your boat. that's it. I really was expecting something else. Sorry.
