Great place to hang especially in the summer! They have farmers markets here in the summer with music, flowers, and lots of fresh food! You can go tubing down the river from here and there's also music in the park on Thursday evenings.

We usually make all the concerts in the summer. Nice relaxing place. You can bring a beer or wine and enjoy the outdoors as you listen to a variety of music.

Phoenix Park is a great place whether you are just wandering on a week day or weekend, going to the farmer's market, or the summer concert series. Lots of beautiful flowers and plants with winding paths. Launch site for many tubers in the summer time.
