Parking: There is no free parking in this area. There are parking meters along the side of the park on Commerce St. so bring a few quarters! There is also a parking lot directly across the street with a self pay box. Good to bring a couple of one dollar bills to put in the slots if you park there.

They have two outdoor, dog friendly patios. On weekends and evenings we can let the dogs run in the their doggie daycare area.
