There was something there for everyone. There were at least 5 playgrounds each with equipment for specific ages, skate parks for bicyclists and skateboarders and areas designed for aerobic exercise.

You could play soccer, basketball, and volleyball. Kites were flying, people of all ages were on the walking/running trails, and others were having snacks that could be purchased from the many vendors. At one end of the park was a meandering pond for paddle boating enthusiasts and at the other end was a botanical garden. There were artists and performers of various kinds also. It was delightful to see families out enjoying each other on a lovely Sunday afternoon.

Our flight back to Atlanta, Georgia was at 11:15 PM, so around 6:00 we packed up and left to return our rental. We then spent the next 3 hours hanging out at the airport...fun...lol It was hard to believe that our spectacular adventure was coming to a close. Memories that will last a lifetime. Thank you, Bud!
