If you start at Salmon street and walk south up a slight incline, you will enjoy the tree canopy, especially in the fall when the trees are quite breath-taking. I would disagree with the couple of reviewers who are disgusted with the homeless situation there....More

I enjoy parks. Parks are supposed to be safe, peaceful and allows people to rest and enjoy the scenery. But not South Park Blocks. They are far too many homeless people loitering around this park and it needs to be maintained.

The South Park area is lovely. Lots of trees and benches for great strolls. The university is at one end. It has theatres and museums, plus cafes and beautiful homes. This is a real urban oasis, with Teddy overlooking the area.
