Pros: Excellent place. Very beautiful views. Reasonable bird life for inside the city. Free parking. Best time for a short visit is in the evening. Cons: dog poop on grass. So watch where you sir and careful with hookah smokers. Kids get attracted easily.
Walk alone contemplating. Walk hand in hand with your loved one sharing romantic moments. Share glorious time as a group - eat and share recipes. Be in a large group - Bar B Que, savour shared food, play games, sing and dance, have great multiple families' get together. Enjoy the ambience, nature, be happy and share the joys of happiness.
