  • An area to stroll. Not particularly pretty rather a functional park used by the people for walking and sport  more »
  • A nice green space in a crowded city. The PROS: Beautiful trees, quite a few birds, plenty of room to roam and relax. The CONS: Poor drainage so in the rainy season much of the grassy areas, and even the pathways, are swampy, quite a few sketchy individuals present either drunk or high or both.
  • Nice park. Lots of stuff to do. Lots of things to see. Great treats you can try.
