This park was very nice with a statue of Harriet Tubman and Garret Harrison along with a brief explanation. This park borders the river and is close to river market if you want to grab a drink or a bite on the river as well

Quiet restful surrounding with a great River side path to stroll along having a good conversation with a loved one. Plenty of spots to stop along the way, either under the shade of a tree or if you want to much on something at one...More
