    A Brutalist fountain is one of the many highlights one can find in this cool urban maze that floats like a fortress of nature and concrete above Interstate 5.

    Didn't realize this place was "sketchy". Perhaps I don't pay attention, but appearances are deceiving.

    I come here at least 3 times a week after 11 pm and I never feel unsafe.

    This park gets credit for helping me on my 3 mile walk + tons of stairs lunch workout! These stairs are no joke, you'll be sweatin'!

    Take some time to admire the flowers- there are many!

    Delightful by day. But you have to love right angles, stairs, and concrete. A setting in the urban fantasy novel HELLEPHANT!

    The city really is trying to clean up this park's image and get normal law-abiding people to enjoy it. It really is a beautiful place, and the water sculpture is so cool! Check it out! (but don't fall
