My husband and I went on a nice little walk after dinner in the park. It was nice to walk across the bridge from downtown to the quiet and calmness of the park. We visited the cannons, fountain, and statues. We enjoyed it.

To make a long story short, my husband and I loved this park!! Views were amazing!! The historical facts about the cannons and the WWl weapon were interesting!! If we could've walked further and had the time we would have. Maybe next time.

The perfect respite from all the shopping you'll do! This relaxing, well-maintained park offers great photo opportunities and options to explore. There are historical markers -- statues, cannons -- and personal ones (a combined human/canine water fountain erected in honor of someone's beloved pet). We...More
