Lovely park to walk around and view the sculptures. Close to a museum and restaurants. Take some time and visit the local jewelry stores nearby in Old Town Scottsdale.

There is an art walk along Main on Thursday nights (not so in the hotter summer months). Most of the galleries are open there, in addition to restaurants and bars.
