“Lovely flowers”
Reviewed November 25, 2012

A pretty walk through the park right in the middle of downtown. Incredibly colourful. If you park along the street nearby, careful you don't lose track of time!

“Nice pass-through”
Reviewed November 18, 2012

This large section of land is conveniently placed in the main area of the city. We passed through on our way from the port to the Citadel. There are nice fountains and statues but the most eye-catching decoration is a scale model of the Titanic floating in the pond. Kind of gives you a shiver. The large central gazebo is photo worthy. Also of note: the garden layout is perfectly symmetrical.
