  • I love it here. Beautiful place to watch the sunset and learn some history. And a place to pay respects while all of this is happening.
  • Beautiful but small park and cemetery. Sometimes there's a lone man playing the bagpipes and it makes my day. Quiet and serene
  • Cool, peaceful point of interest.
  • Interesting historic stop.
