Easy to find, parking was nearby. Relaxed quiet atmosphere with a beautiful variety of roses. The people there were polite and unobtrusive. It was not crowded. That said, we were there in mid-fall.

I just love this park, it's beautifully designed and very well kept. I live near the area and I try to visit as often as I can with my dogs. Summers at this park are my favorite!

What a lovely treasure in the middle of the city. Was such a treat to walk through it. We happened to be there in October when they had a lot of Halloween things up and that was really a bonus. Loved our time here!
