The park itself is nice. There are some people that exercise and lot of homeless, junkies and prostitutes. Is little scary to walk outside of the park when it gets dark. Only one gate was open. All the other was locked, and I have to...More

Walked through the park after going to the Portuguese Language Museum. It is the perfect place for s leisurely stroll with many art pieces, fountains, & small structures to look at. Found this park to be beautifully designed and very peaceful.

A most beautiful and tranquil park with so much character and beauty. A mix of modern art and the old classics. Different terrains make it a local hangout and work out place. The landscape combined with scattered pieces of architecture makes one linger longer and...More

This is a small city park with paved paths. They had art work along the way, plus the cave and waterfall. There are trees, water, flowers and art work to enjoy.
