“Devastated by the recent cyclone”
2 of 5 bubbles Reviewed February 1, 2012

Some of the venerable old trees in the park were uprooted or broken by the Cyclone that hit in January 2012. There doesn't seem to be much urgency to clean up the mess or repair anything. Truly a shame since the park has great potential....the layout is very nice. I hope the local gov't will rise to the occasion and make the place nice again.

“an average park”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed December 19, 2011

Nothing much special, an average park close to the beach road. As it is a walking distance from the beach road, a person visiting the beach road and have a walk in the park. We went there during the evening time.
