Mears Park is a tranquil and scenic park in contrast to the business and busyness surrounding it. It has a covered bandshell with electricity, so there are concerts and other events occurring throughout the year. There is a stream that runs diagonally through the park, which is soothing to watch and hear. It participates in the Fitness in the Parks program in the summer, and it's home to festivals from time to time as well. It's a good blend of flora and fauna.
