Bower ponds is always nice to go to. We like taking walks or biking here. The summer time is best, you can paddle-boat or go into the water ball. They have a 2-4 person hooded bike cart you can drive around as well.

This is an excellent place for anyone, of any age, to have a peaceful interlude. I particularly enjoy how often this space is used for public performances.
