Lots to see and do. The luge was a lot of fun, my teens loved it. I wish the zip line wasn’t so pricey though.

It was fine day so it was a pleasure to stroll around this square which is important in relation to celebrating the 1988 Olympics. The hanging baskets of flowers added to the neat look

I love coming here especially when there is an event. Everything is beautiful about it. The flowers, the water and everything else except one thing. Sometimes, there are undesirable people around which can get uncomfortable...but this doesn't stop me from coming and enjoying downtown.

The park is lovely. We visited on a sunny day, enjoyed the flowers and serenity. There are tables where one can enjoy a packed lunch.

I just found the sculpture itself interesting. And I don’t know what it is about it, but somehow it’s relaxing to look at it. It’s peaceful. You want to look and just absorb it for awhile.
