Working near by, on Swan Island, it's wonderful to have such a beautiful park nearby to stroll and escape for a picnic lunch on occasion. The great fountains, beautiful roses, mature trees, all add to giving you that tucked away feeling so close to the city. Taking a lunch, sitting on the near a fountain or a shaded park bench, is such a nice change of pace from the daily grind. A real jewel! Plenty of street parking. On hot days, drive around the park to find a shady spot!
