Park
“This is such a pretty place to go and hang out by the river. You can watch the sun rise if you are so inclined or take a picnic lunch here and find a bench or throw a blanket on the grass and enjoy the river lazily floating by. This is two blocks over and across the street, then you can walk or drive down to the river and park in one of the parking lots.”
