Trees in bloom. Kids running around. Frisbees. More adults than kids on the merry go round 😎. Well kept. Places to sit and rest. Come on over and chill.

Coolidge Park is free! There is a really great merry-go-round that costs $1 per person, but the rest of the park is free. There are some great shops and places to eat close to the park, too.
