This is a park hidden in plain sight. It is located over I 5 and right next to the convention center. But most people have no idea that it's a park when looking at it from the outside. It is most definitely worth a visit.

When the park was designed and opened back in the 70's it was something very different in city parks. It was a very different way of using land and space. Now it's still a beautiful space/park but with most of the challenges any major city...More

This is a very cool idea utilizing basically airspace over a major freeway. Surprisingly quite, and well manicured and during the summer weekends, you can usually catch a free concert. There also are a number of entrances/exits and walkways if you want to get some...More
