I know that the Koreshians believed this park was the "center of the universe..." and while we know now it is not, I still feel amazing energy when I walk through the lovely path. Sunday mornings farmer's market is also a lot of fun.

Nice park. Interesting history and buildings and bridges on the grounds. You can spend a lot of time here walking around and learning the history of the park. Farmers market on Sunday. Not a lot of vendors but just enough.
