Wonderful park just on the edge of downtown along the beautiful river that is so clean. The trail is shaded and plenty wide for the bikers walkers and joggers. It offers great views of downtown as well.

Great for on outdoor walk, biking, jogging, picnic or just reading a book. I love this green space in the middle of the city where you can go and de-stress. The park is also good for going with pets or with little ones.
