  • We were staying across the street at the Wyndham, so this park was very convenient to go for a walk. It is very nice on a sunny day, lots of people and benches if you wanted to people watch.

  • This is a nice little park where children come with their families to frolic in the water feature with the arched jets over a shallow walkway, and play on the artistic and creative playground...

  • We love the waterfront park. During the summer we’re there a couple times a week. Even in the cooler months the shallow water with the black bottom keeps the water warm. We love hitting the New Childrens Museum and then the waterpark. There are food trucks nearby on the weekends too. There are benches with shade but those areas also have some loose decomposed granite so if you want to be in the grassy part and not get dirty, bring an umbrella. Depending on which security guard is there, you may not be allowed to play with water toys. It’s really nice that the playground is right there, it provides hours of engagement and group play in the water and the playground! It’s also sweet that people getting married stroll by :) the gardens on the north side provide a meditative walk too. Only downside is parking can be hairy and during the summer they sometimes close down the area for music festivals.
  • This is a fantastic spot to come with children. There’s the splash pad section which is pretty much for all ages. The city keeps it very clean and no pets are allowed. It’s nice that it’s by a big grassy area which you can come with an umbrella and snacks. There’s also the park part which is designed for kids 2 and up. The park is very nice but there were some homeless people that got on the playground and were scaring the kids. The park is fantastic but security should be tighter at this park for families to feel safe.
