This is a nice place to wander for an hour or so looking back at the modern city and out to sea. There is a futuristic Maritime Museum and the Port Tower can be visited during the day affording excellent views of the city.

Nice for walking and watching the views. Nearby, there is a shopping center where you may have delicious meal with friends or family. Good place for tourists, I've got chopsticks with my sisters name.

The Park has been made by American marines many years ago. It was named American Park and then changed to Meriken Park. There's a museum of Mariners that you can go and see. Kids can play in the park which is very wide and beautiful....More

We stayed at a hotel nearby and wandered down to Meriken Park. The view of the water is beautiful. In the park are some nice pieces of art.
