In addition to its fitness and educational programming, the park also hosts free movie screenings, symphony concerts, and opera simulcasts. The park provides a pristine, entertainment-rich green space for people of all ages to enjoy. Major features include a children’s park, dog park, great lawn, performance pavilion, restaurant, reading and game room, and five water features. Planning began in 2004 and was completed in 2012.
