There is a lily pond & a small ‘stadium’ where live performances sometimes take place. In the evenings, the ‘shelters’ in the park transform into dance schools & people dance to the tunes from old school style beat boxes.
Grab a ca phe or something to eat and sit down by the side to people watch. On the weekends there's a large group doing aerobics and a kind of hacky sack. Nice place to chill
