This was a great stop on our drive. Like one reviewer mentioned it was a nice break from driving and so much to look at. Beautiful views and even our 13 and 17 year old enjoyed it. The park also has an entrance to the zoo!!

Decided to stop here in the middle of a long day of travel and it was a nice break. There is a parking lot near the start of the canal where I paid $8 for a two hour stay, there might have been cheaper/free options but I didn't look around. It was a really nice break from driving, not too long of a walk, so go around the entire canal! The art structures were cool.

A beautiful space to walk, bike, paddle boat or enjoy a gondola ride. There is wonderful art painted on the walls of the tunnel, an eatery, and an old whistle clock tower.
