My husband plays taps every year here for the Memorial Day celebration. The park is always clean and well maintained. Also come here for special events like the Fine Arts Festival. Thank you City of Fort Myers for this lovely park!

Great place to take visitors for river views lots of restaurants near by or take a lunch. Construction will be a few months they say. Parking is a bit difficult during winter months.

Everything is in walking distance. A wonderful day of eating, seeing the water and the boats coming and going. Different styles of choices for food and drinks at every corner. Music was at some, clothing stores are between business. Wonderful blend of everything.

Not if you park in the lot. Yes, if you park on the street where the meters are. The lot is not very big, though.
