I have been here several times and i will not get tired of visiting again soon. It feels very relaxing to go along the river walk and feel the natural environment, so much that at the end of the walk you feel so renewed!

Lots of shade, beautiful views of the river and easy parking with restrooms and water fountain. This is a great place for a long or short walk or run. The signage is very good too.
