Has something for everyone-- super nice new playground, walking/ biking trails, dog parks (one for hug and one for small dogs), places to sit by the river, portapotties, water fountains, connections to river accesses and neighborhoods, plenty of parking, cool bridge

I was looking for a place to run as running on the hotel treadmill is a bore. This place is nice and has plenty of people on it to feel safe. It is a little strange how it snakes through neighborhoods and the river but...More
