  • Beautiful, enormous park with well maintained grounds and man-made lake. Well-loved and much frequented by local and visitors alike.
  • A great place to get out of the hustle & bustle of the city. I recommend to visit the lake and have lunch at the North shore with this amazing view. Always be careful with your belongings. There's a lot more to see, better in a car with a guide.
  • Nice park to walk around the lake there's also restaurant close by
  • Found this place by accident. Very pretty.
  • One of the most beautiful parks I've ever seen. Very close to downtown and excellent to spend a day exercising or just hanging out with family and friends. Nice views and landscapes
