This is where the city gets its name, fabulous pens with the bears enjoying their days wandering in their enclosures close to the river. well worth a visit.

really nice: one can enjoy nature, view, sun, water and land. and yet so near to the busy center. the walk by the river is great and offers banks all along to sit and rest and enjoy

Bears are not out much this time of year. You will see them a lot in april.

Weather will be nicer and will make for nlgreat photos.

It was winter so I couldn’t see the bears but it’s a great place to walk. I had a black vanilla ice cream that I didn’t know it excited but it was great I’ll post a photo so yo can see. They also have a restaurant and bar with lots of options and the food was great. They also have their own brewery.

I visited during winter so I suppose the bears are in deep sleep, but can't wait to visit during spring to see them. For now, the statue must suffice.
