I go here quite often in the spring and summer for lunch. It's a nice relaxing park to just read or fly your drone. If you have never been here, you need to try it out.

Despite the freezing temperatures outside, we parked and walked around the corner to see the river up close. Holy cow! The river was covered in pieces of ice. The sounds of the mini glaciers hitting each other was awesome.

A relaxing almost Zen like spot to just forget about troubles for a period of time...the river seems to cleanse the soul as the waters pass by unaware of any strife...
