Walk, eat, picnic on a blanket, read, relax or people watch. Ride a bicycle via the ride sharing station. Great for singles, couples and groups. We even saw a wedding taking place on the bridge.

Coolidge Park is free! There is a really great merry-go-round that costs $1 per person, but the rest of the park is free. There are some great shops and places to eat close to the park, too.
