Nicely set up small park just off the square. The sculpture of Old Rip is good, there are places to sit along with a history of Old Rip and other interesting reading bits. It is very small but pleasant.

I'd recommend visiting Old Rip in the cooler months. There's not much to it and I plan to visit other interesting places there soon

Not much to see or do but the sculpture and story of Old Rip is an interesting one and certainly unique!
