We went to this charming park to feed the ducks, but then there were only 2 ducks! The rest were geese. Then when we threw the bread seagulls attacked the ducks and geese to steal the bread.

As we are having pretty pleasant weather a trip to the park was in perfect order for the day. I met a few friends with kids/relatives and we spent a lovely day relaxing and enjoying outdoor fun!

Very nice family oriented park, everything is concentrated into one area, the playground, the Food Grill, the outdoor amphitheater. they all are within a few paces away from each other. The scene is awesome, its a peaceful park tucked away from it all.

Such a nice place to spend an afternoon. You can walk along the waterfront, play tennis, take the kids to the activities area, or even take a short train ride on Pokey Smokey. What fun. Bring some bread and feed the ducks, too.
