very pretty. nice and quiet. path circles around a large pond with loads of turtles, fish and greenery.
TYPE OF PATH:
gravel -- portions of the path can get a little bumpy
For running: Yes. There are often several other dogs on the path as well
For playgrounding: Yes. Just be sure to keep the pooch close-by as there are often many kiddos playing, and lots of food to be snatched.
separate play space for the really little ones
*currently not a lot of shade, but thats because of a recent storm. A little birdie mentioned that Central Market is working on covering the playscape with a large canvas tarp.
BATHROOMS (BECAUSE POTTY TRAINING HAPPENS):
very nice bathrooms located inside the cafe portion of Central Market.
loads of parking, but a very busy lot. There is a smaller, more private lot worth seeking out on the East side of Guadalupe and 38 1/2.
Central Market - if you haven't been to this market, it is definitely worth checking out!
The cafe inside central market has anything and everything from iced coffee to chocolate croissants to sushi. YUM.
Large shopping complex, so there are many other shops to visit
There is a bridge over the middle of the pond that is great for turtle-watching
