Beautiful place to walk and take pictures. Bring a blanket and chairs and have a picnic. Come for the sunset - it is spectacular.

We can only imagine how few Saturdays this city has perfect weather days. We certainly enjoyed ours. People everywhere. And found a parking spot quickly.

Absolutely. It may not be the law, but it should be! Everyone should have a dog at the waterfront park! (But bring a leash!)
