It is okay to stop here and take pictures of the City Centre. But do remember that you shouldn't take pictures of government buildings and Hotels. It is not allowed.

Drive to the viewpoint above the park. Have a little walk on a weekend or during events on special occasions. Be a bit careful and make sure that a few People are with you.
