This four-acre gorgeously landscaped park is a blatant tourist trap. And it’s totally worth it. With cobblestone pathways coursing around the river, Venetian style foot-bridges crossing the water, gondolas leisurely carrying passengers past, and with fountains and pavilions, it’s easily one of the most chic and romantic places in the city. What you see here today is actually the unbelievable result of an extensive land reclamation and redevelopment project. Before this it used to be an unholy mess of earth and water. The park is at its most delightful in the summer during concerts, bonfires, music festivals and the beautiful Waterfire events (community arts event and festival).

Fun to watch! Must visit it’s super cool .. good crowd and music. Although as a visitor you need to know where is the main/ major fun! Took time to figure out but the walk was worth it!
Waterfire is an incredible experience! Put it on your bucket list because everyone should visit at least once in their lifetime! Family Friendly and a wonderful date night idea!
If you want free parking you have to go early. I always pay for parking in one of the many lots. The walk has never been far and it's easier getting out. Water Fire is a Wonderful show. If the River edge gets a little crowded you can always take a walk and checkout some of the many local crafts and art displays that are up for sale. Absolutely beautiful craftsmanship.
It was fun! Crowded but amazing to watch! Good views, good food to buy, can be expensive so make sure to bring some cash for yourself! Overall had a great experience, I will definitely go again.
