They have updated the walking paths and bridges. Nice place to walk and many monuments to observe. Right off of highway 90.

It's easy to miss if you don't know where it is. It's next to the Ocean Springs Civic Center on Hwy 90. Not very big and it should have more people visit.

Yup, as the others said, open every day. No fee. Parking in the back. The police might come by if you're there after dark.
