love the rose garden and landscaping (when in bloom). nice foot trail as well. great location for pictures. also good for family/friend gatherings! they have a playground for kids too. a beautiful view of the river as well. only down sides to this park is as follows: no dogs, no alcohol, and bees... but I know I can leave with that and I'm sure you can too.
This garden was always my favorite to visit in the summer. The roses begin to bloom in late June & July. There is a covered picnic area perfect for family reunions or picnics and a beautifully landscaped garden ideal for weddings. There's also a wonderful and semi-private picnic spot where you get a beautiful view of the river. As I remember it, this was also a popular place for basketball, volleyball, and softball. There are plenty of play structures for kids as well.
