Found this place of interest via Google Maps. Pleasantly suprised. They have FREE mini golf 😊 arrive before 12 as it shuts at that time (so we couldn't finish the final 2 holes). The peacocks are really cool just wandering around. Interesting geriatric gym and...More

Full of pigeons, pigeon dead bodies and pigeon poo. Overgrown, uncut grass, smelly polluted water and overall just unkempt and depressing space. Don't go out of your way to find this spot it simply isn't worth it.
