It's just a nice park. One weekends artists and craftspeople show their wares. But for me, the best part are the lovely, huge old trees. They are so amazing. It is also good for kids and you see a lot of families there.

Good little park. Average. Nothing crazy or revolutionary here however there are a good amount of little stalls to buy things from. Weekends are much, much busier than the weekdays obviously. During the week, it is like any other city park.

This is a thriving park in the center of the city. The game that resembles volleyball is played and surprisingly high-stakes card games that I didn't understand are played too. Buy a good meat skewer, sit, and watch the city go.

It is better to go to the center of the city, you will find more of the cultural background and more cool things.
