The park is very nice with the main outdoor attraction being the rose garden. If you’re looking for a spot to sit in the shade say like with a picnic blanket this isn’t really the place. Yes there are grassy areas but this isn’t a park with large play areas for kids. The park is mostly made up of the various museum buildings. Still a nice area to spend the day.
I think this is a really cool idea - having so many museums right near and easily accessible. That being said, it needs some work to be great museums. The exhibits are sparse, and need more substance. The shuttle is great, but the display is lacking. I hope in the next few years, they build up the museums.
