Excellent place to spend a sunny afternoon. My 11 year old son and I rented the kayak on the canal. Lots of smiles and laughs. Enjoyed a walk to the river and watching all the people. A safe and fun place.

This is a nice view of the city along the river. I found it quite beautiful for a casual stroll, walk, or to exercise. This is a must see if you're exploring the city.
