    Short walk after Salamanca stroll. Basically aiming the end of the street to see the stunning water and mountain across for photo taking then walk back pass the gorgeous park with lots of people on the grass reading books chilling. Nice garden with toilet.

    I initially thought that this was a small park at the junction of Davey and Salamanca Street and was very surprised to see various headstones, memorials and crypts. Researched the place later that night and discovered that it is an English style walled park dating to the settlement of 1804 and the site of the first burial ground in Tasmania. So much history here since settlement, luckily I had taken multiple photographs. The main entrance, from Davey Street, is a portico with lions heads atop each pf the sandstone pillars. Other features of the park include the monuments to Sir John Eardley Eardley-Wilmot and David Collins, both Lieutenant Governors of the colony, James Ebenezer Bicheno, colonial secretary and various plaques of historical interest. Lovely park with the mature trees and some local enjoying a picnic.

    We ere interested in the history of the area, a former quarry dating to convict days and providing the bulk of the sandstone rock that was used in the construction of houses and other buildings. The Square was only completed in 1997, the development including apartments, shops, restaurants, offices and the public space with the fountain a feature. Happy that we visited and enjoyed a snack at Banjo's.

    This is an impressive walkway over the Tasman Highway and is described as all-abilities pedestrian and bicycle bridge. The Red Decker stops adjacent the Doone Kennedy Hobart Aquatic Centre and then stroll up Soldiers Memorial Avenue to the bridge. Architecturally and engineered aesthetically.
