Its a nice park but unless there is an activity or market on, no real need to visit. The farmer's market is supposed to be good but was not on when we were in town given the time of year

Had a wonderful time visiting Marion Square. It was a very place to take break and enjoy shopping with the local vendors and enjoy listening to local musicians.
