Large area with plenty of space to enjoy whatever activity you like or simply sit and read a book. Easy access to the Greenbelt and adjoining parks.

This city is beautifully maintained, and the park is no exception. The site of museums and the zoo, the park has nice trails, flourishing flora, and loads of geese. I love seeing the geese of all ages, but those downy youngsters were my favorite.

Very nice park. Near the zoo. The flowers are great. I think that you can access the green belt from here.

We came here on a weekend getaway from Nevada. This park has a lot of activities. The zoo and the Black History museum is located here along with other activities. The only downside was that part of the park was closed to construction.
