Once a supermarket parking lot, this two-acre expanse serves as an idyllic waterfront spot. In addition to a promendade for blading, biking and strolling, there’s also a pier for catch-and-release fishing and another that serves as a kayak launch. Don’t miss local artist Nari Ward’s three fishing-inspired sculptures that resemble giant rods and eyelet guides, plus his series of street-sign installations featuring text drawn from surveys of community members’ memories of the area.
