Been here several times now and I always enjoy myself. Parking is much easier now that they added the new parking areas along Allen pkwy. Great photo ops of downtown. Highly recommended​.

Loved walking and biking this beautiful, scenic pathway! Lots of shady spots, very limited "hills". Easy to do short or long jaunts.

Pleasant place to spend some down time. Attractive setting with city as a back drop. Biking and skateboarding available. Hiking or strolling is also launched here. Not much food other than a few trucks.
