The park boasts plenty of greenery and scenic views. Even with the sun out, the place is still (relatively) cool because of the shade the trees provide; it still gets quite humid, though. In the center of it all, Farm in the City features a lake that houses colorful koi fish. Watching the koi fish swarm when you drop food in the water is a lot of fun for the kids.
