It is quick and easy, not a lot to learn unless you ask the questions… However it is something to still do; especially if you’re not able to stay in a building that is tall enough for you to see across the city from the north to the south and along the water! The park that it is in is a beautiful park with paddle boats in the center, bike and running path all around...really enjoyed that walk to and through it!
