We drove through the park and stopped at the Conservatory. It's a very nice urban park full of people enjoying the sunny days plus men walking there dogs.

My hobby is flower photography, and this is one of my go to places. There are so many varieties that bloom at different times you are sure to find something worth photographing

Very well kept and near the Asian Art Museum. Museum now going through a face lift, but the park is great for other activities. The conservatory is heavenly. Wonderful scents, and exotic plants. Well curated. Good for a day out.
