Small park with a pavilion used as a farmers market on Saturday’ and Wednesday. It is also used for food truck rodeos and other festivals. There are also concerts in the summer.. Great little urban site.

This park is a short run. Not enough space to do all tricks but plenty of room to move around for short tricks. Right across the street from a Police station and a McDonalds is about 3 blocks up for food. Part of a larger...More

The park itself is quite small but on the weekends there is amazing fresh produce and once in a while, fun food truck fairs. even those are fairly small (think 10 minutes to walk through, 40 min if you're stopping often and eating).

Farmers market on Wednesday and Saturday is the highlight for us. A real blossoming downtown scene, but really only worth going when there's something happening.
