A sunny afternoon spent here with your family will not be wasted. In addition to the roses, there are plenty of other activities as the rose garden is located within Elizabeth Park.

Mortensen Riverfront Plaza

If you are looking for a public space to get a great, free workout, you will love the Riverfront Plaza. While walking or jogging, you will get some great fresh air blowing in from the river. The boats moving back and forth along the water are a wonderful sight to see early in the morning or evening. And there are the plaza stairs that are great for accelerating your workout or for just sitting and relaxing.

The Plaza is also a venue for live music from performers that appear there throughout the year. Everything from food truck festivals to KISS could show up right here. Keep up with the event calendar to see which ones you don’t want to miss.
