Coulon is a good park to walk or run by the waterfront. It's also a good place to sit on one of the benches to reflect. For the most part, it is quiet (other than summer). You can watch the boats go by or watch the birds and other animals. The food there is ok. During the summer, there's good places to sunbathe and swim. Also, it is a good place to watch fireworks. The fireworks display might be smaller at this location, but it is still good...and not as crowded as the Seattle one. However, it is still hard to find parking during the fireworks show.
Pros: Good park, good place to watch fireworks
