I drive by this lovely park with pretty fountain, trees, bushes and benches, but will not stop in the evening due to the people who hang out there. A shame as it could be an oasis in the downtown.

The fountain is nice to watch and you can walk around the park. I would however be careful after dark in this area of town.

This is a nice place to sit, eat lunch and watch the fountain. There are walking paths around the park. Many nice flowers to look at too.

A great place to sit and read the newspaper or a book... A way to get away from the hustle & bustle of everyday life in downtown lansing

This park is a block square. The fountain is really beautiful. People are in and out of the park all day.
