Other Downtown Parks

Whether you’re looking for a refreshing walk, a place to eat lunch, or to relax with a waterfront view, downtown has a park for you. In addition to directly managing public spaces like Westlake Park and Occidental Square, DSA provides operations and staffing assistance in several other parks around the center city. Read more below about how you can experience these free and fun downtown destinations.
