This park is just across the road from the cathedral. It's not much to look at, but it has been a bee sanctuary for a couple of years and there are a couple of hives here.

In front of the cathedral but sadly this square does not have the appeal of the cathedral. Very rundown and not really a pleasant place to visit.

Could be a beautiful tranquil place to sit but it isn’t. It’s a concrete square with lots of litter and vagrants. Such a shame as the church is a beautiful piece of architecture.

How else can that blue cage of imposing, unfriendly metal go away? Harry Potter! Give us a hand here! Once, this served as the frame for a covering intended to produce shade and protection from the elements but its skeleton does nothing to make this square welcoming in the "here and now". The grounds are neglected and the pond isn't serving the purpose of being a place to reflect and relax. Grass is nearly non-existent and litter (leaf and human) is everywhere. But the public art mural on the retaining wall is really worth viewing. . The mural project was designed as public art by street-involved youth artists. The mural tells so many stories but one shows the world on fire and the skateboard theme does run through the mural. I'd come back again, just to look at this involved piece of mosaic art. Across the street is the historic 1899 Catholic Church (Cathedral of our Lady of the Holy Rosary). There is a bench out front with a sculpture of a man sleeping under a hooded wrap, and his feet speak volumes about who he is (look at the nail holes). The homeless do lay their own blankets down in Cathedral Square. There's a nexus here. From the square, the church is quite spectacular; the spires and architectural features really dominate a photo lens.

I believe I saw a sign explaining some new renovations to be done but this park has seen better days. Maybe folks who frequent local shelters and soup kitchens use it. I saw sleeping bags stored in some bushes and trash was everywhere. The smell of urine was pretty strong.
