This is one of my favorite places to sit outside when it's warm and sunny. I always bring my friends/family here when they visit and sit over the edge. Also a nice place to people watch!

We visited the Parliament and government buildings and the surrounding areas and wandered around the river. This is a beautiful spot, quite picturesque. The views are wonderful and it's a very clean place too. The architecture is fantastic. Very enjoyable.

A nice walk along the river to view the Prime Minister’s office and other buildings along it. A nice path with statues on the side, very peaceful and tranquil. A grand experience of serenity in the city and well recommended.
