Every day at around 8AM-10AM, locals practice tai-chi, the martial art and meditation practice. Different sections of the park will host everything from jazzercise to sword-play. Sunny days will bring out locals lounging on their blankets. Art fairs are frequent, and the oyster-beer fair in March is very popular. The park used to be a favorite among the Beat poets as well ? Jack Kerouac used to hang out here frequently enjoying the sunshine with a bottle of port.
