A masterpiece of urban planning. an excellent place to relax your mind and stretch your legs. Not as busy as NYC Central Park but more beautiful. Looks as it is real nature although it is man-made. worth frequent strolls.

We didn't explore the entire park, but we did walk along the lake and enjoy the vistas. It was peaceful and enjoyable and empty. The park is beautiful (Frederick Law Olmstead).

This is a large open park in the city with a nice cinder and asphalt track surrounding it. All around it’s about 1.7 miles and is mostly unshaded so watch the heat.
