This park is fun to walk around! On weekends they sometimes offer a free zipline rice, which is very fun! I would recommend for sure!

What a great find in the middle of the city with lovely nooks and crannies at every turn. There is also a zip line in the middle of the park.

I totally enjoyed walking in this park. There also is a "zoo" with some snakes and birds that had been injured and that they are taking care of. It's an oasis in the city
