Very disappointing to visit. Again, a prime example of a city discovered by tourist scrambling to find things to put in a travel brochure. Don't waste your time!

Love to visit. When there is an art festival. Always lots to look at and purchase from talented artists. Pack Square is a neat park with fountains and seating and great people watching.

It was really nice to see all the children enjoying the park and the fountain. Lots of happy faces and relaxed parents :-)

Always something to do in and around Pack Square, Most weekends it seems there is some sort of festival or event going on. If not, it is a great place for the kids to run around especially on a warm day.

The wife, The Sister and I had a nice leisurely couple of hours in this park on Saturday, looking at a variety of crafts from local artists, as well as enjoying music from a concert on a large Stage.

My kids love to come visit this park every time we are I town. Last time we were there it was a bit too cold for us and I said no, they were very sad. Maybe next time kids... we will definitely come back!!!!

We attended a festival here and were impressed with this space. It is a linear park with an amphitheater for music and speakers. It is very near Wall Street which has great vegan and vegetarian restaurants.

It's a great place for kids to play with each other & not be indoors stimulated by machines, lights, noise, etc. Take sun block & a change of clothes & let your kids chase those water shoots, they'll have a blast
