Fodor's Review

Framing nearly an acre of landscaped desert gardens and bird-watching areas, this lovely waterfront spot stretches along a 1-mile boardwalk through a beachy section of the Ellis Cove coastline. To the south are yachts bobbing in the water at the wooden docks and the waterfront Anthony's restaurant; to the north are the shipyards and cargo cranes; and to the east is the market. In the center is an open space with an outdoor stage for summer shows, music, and festivals.

You can see it all from three stories up by climbing the winding steps of the timber viewing tower, where open benches invite visitors to relax and enjoy the city views.
