Very packed for fireworks on NYE. We ended up parking in Century Link Arena's parking lots. Good show of fireworks and weather was not too cold

What a delight - walking along the water with thousands of lights decorating the trees. No cost to stroll along this winter wonderland.

Cutting through the middle of downtown just north of the Old Market is an extensive series of canals which have been creatively landscaped with waterfalls and pools. It is very attractive and a nice place for families to stroll. It leads to a small lake with a very impressive water jet overlooking the Missouri River.

We were staying in the Old Market area and walked here on a fall afternoon. The trail was great. Very peaceful for being in the middle of the city. Unfortunately there was some construction blocking part of the trail, but otherwise we really enjoyed the park for something to do mid-afternoon and get some exercise and fresh air.

This is an urban park in the heart of downtown. It has almost everything that's needed. Wide open spaces, water falls, gardens, the highest shooting fountain in North America, beautiful scenery and a walking path around the lake. Ducks and geese abound. There are plenty of spots for picnics. There are events held throughout the warmer months with some food... More

What a beautiful park that you can walk along and see the geese, ducks and birds everywhere. A huge lake with a beautiful contain in center that shoots spray over 300 foot in the air every few minutes. Its an awesome display and can actually be seen from Amtrak station, the Durham Museum, and Century Link Arena.

Ride the gondolas or just take a stroll around the park... bring a sack lunch or grab some takeout from one of the restaurants in the old market.
