Parking during the day is very difficult. Loved to walk along the water's edge and hear the water lapping on the wall. I expected flowers in a garden there were none. It is really a park shaded by tall trees.

Walk along the river any time. But I would not suggest after 11, just for safety's sake. The actual park area closes to keep the homeless from congregating around dark, not 5 PM.
