Walked around the park while waiting for a table at a nearby restaurant. The views of the city and mountains are spectacular! Fun place to watch ducks in the pond and people roller skate. Would be an awesome place for a picnic!

My hubby and I enjoyed this park very much, except for all of the flying geese poop (it was everywhere!!). Beautiful, peaceful grass, flowers and statues. Great for joggers, families. Needs more benches, maybe we will have to see about donating one.

I like this park mainly because of its views of the city and the mountains. It can smell like elephant poo on certain days due to the zoo being right next door. There is a large lake where you can rent paddle boats.

I am lucky enough to call this park my "neighborhood park" since I live just 2 blocks away in Park Hill. The best feature of this park is the network of paths that you can take, either around the outside, or throughout the park. Its...More

I am almost positive you can. You have to go through the city to reserve your day if it is available though. There is a certain time of year when brides line up around a block downtown to request to have their wedding at a... More
