Visited on 4th of July which was amazing. Food vendors, games, artists and music. Can't wait to check it out on a normal day. Very pretty setting. Easy walking paths, water fountains and bathrooms. Great for families and dogs.

Beautiful, shallow, slow flowing river makes this a wonderful destination - just sit and watch the geese/ducks, play games in the park, ride a bike, take a walk. So easily accessible.

There is parallel parking all along the park, plus a large lot at the top of the park near the down town shops. There is also a 5 story parking garage about 2 blocks to the east.
