Beautiful park surrounded by turn of the century homes. The park is very clean and family friendly. Also pet friendly as I saw several people walking their dogs. My daughter had her engagement pics taken here.

Outdoor plays in the summer, nice flower-lined walks, too. Fountains and statues, lots of park benches. Throw a Frisbee, read a book or do what lots of us do -- walk a dog or eat lunch. It's all good, including the bordering Victorian mansions.

A gem in the center of German Village. Calming and inspiring to visit, as there are always people, children, dogs, and activity to enjoy. Clean and spacious, with a decent amount of free parking around the park and on neighboring streets. This community is very...More
