Great dog park including an area to be off leash. Lots of open areas and shading. Nice river views and children's play area too. Area is not so great as homeless seem to sleep there during the day and the area around is deserted.

No charge - unless you count the homeless that pester you for $$. Hopefully the cops have addressed this.
