During the summer you'll find free activities such as the Calathumpians performing plays for the young people, evening concerts and bands, the changing of the guards and demonstrations. It is also a common gathering spot of young adults to drum, dance and relax. In the winter the grounds are flooded and maintained with an outdoor skating rink

From the wintertime skating rink to the weekly music concerts in the summer, Officers' Square offers something for everyone. Friends and families alike enjoy skating by the river on mild winter days. In the summer people bring lawn chairs to take in the music (if you're from out of town, city workers will give you a lawn chair to use... More

Most tourists would not know how beautiful the old Officers Square was with the rose gardens and water fountain, however, it is still a really nice place to visit and you must take a tour of the museum. Not expensive and loads of local history
