Alex Haley Heritage Square Reviews & Ratings
This park is not as like high foot traffic as others. Not sure why to be honest. My kids and I enjoy it usually to ourselves. But it's always super well maintained and clean.
The park is nice and the statue of Mr Haley is inspiring.
Small but nice.
Solemn sweet park. Great tribute
Good park area
