Depot Park is new since I lived in Gainesville and it's a great addition! I visited recently on a trip to Gainesville. Easy parking, free admission, and a very clean city park. Their general store sells old-timey drinks and snacks and there was live music while I was there. Beautiful spot for a nice weather day!
