  • By rain and fog it's a little difficult to enjoy. However, this adds green to a dark City (related materials). Very well maintained Park and who must be beautiful in the Sun.

  • What a pleasure to live in Center City and to have a nice Park at hand! It's really nice to walk inside and see these magnificent swans in this point of water. It is very nice to sit a while on a bench or even in the grass and read a bit as soon as the Sun a bit the tip of his nose! Really nice place!

  • Excellent in summer but sad it's closing so early: *21:30 Summee *19:30 Winter though.
  • It is the best place for you to refresh,its a home away from home with its natural beauty,you won't get bored!
  • Shame that whoever is in charge of updating the site, did not do his/her job. In winter time, the park doesn't close at 18:00 but at 21:00. Other than that, the park is not as maintained as it was 10 or 15 years ago but it still correct and certainly having WIFI is of a great plus.
  • Nice park ...well maintained. Great place to spend time and get some sun light.
  • Lost of show and concerts in the summer
