I had read in many places that this was a must see when downtown. We went during the day and were disappointed. The gardens of Arizona Center were much nicer and relaxing.

The park features an interesting public art installation and a beautifully maintained landscape of plants that provide nice shade and green grass to sit on (a rare site in downtown Phoenix).

I was handling PR for a festival in the park called Phoenix Lights. It was the perfect size and setting for the event. Plenty of natural spots to relax in the shade and a great view of the city. Definitely go to check out the floating sculpture, entitled Her Secret Is Patience.
