I like the fact that it is free to go in & walk around and the water feature outside in the summer is also free. Parking is NOT. LRT takes you downtown - but rush hour times & late at night avoid the LRT there.

Aside from the fountain, there's not much else to do here. During the festival season the whole area is very lively with tons of locals and vendors.

I've attended concerts, lectures, demonstrations, photo shoots, as well as city council meetings, and meetings with my city counselor. Every time I'm here, I'm grateful for this public space that is so versatile and attracts visitors and residents, in all their variety.
