  • An incredible place to contemplate death and the past. History is very much alive in this cemetery that tells its story on each headstone. If you enjoy introspection and thoughtfulness, you should definitely visit this place.
  • Very interesting with historic graves and super steep brutalist bridges over the motorway that cuts the cemetery on halfs.
  • It's quite small and usually quiet, if you can ignore the motorway noise. Hardly ever see anybody around this park. Great place to sit, unwind and read a book during your lunch break.
  • Quiet and relaxing old cemetery. Well kept. Good for a stroll away from the cars.
  • Interesting, different place to visit. Thoroughly enjoyed reading the interesting head stones.
