Had a wonderful time at the annual Spring House Tour where a variety of mid to late 1800's / early 1900's Victorian homes were open to the public. Enjoyed free carriage rides around the neighborhood which surrounds the gorgeous 33 acre Lafayette Park. Also enjoyed...More

No statue of Lafayette but one of George Washington. Nice duck pond and ample space to walk and admire the beauty.

This was a delightful spot for an evening's walk. It's not a large park, but great to see people out walking dogs or enjoying their families. There was one spot on a small bridge you could admire beautiful landscaping. It would be great for joggers...More
