What a great spot. This park is great to loose yourself for a few hours. There is a large building in the middle of the park. The zoo is on one side. They even got a little train.

Close to the city centre this is a fabulous green area of lovely walks. Perfect place to spend a restful few hours away from the hustle and bustle.There is a miniature train children would love to take you around part of the park.
