This is my local park and a little oasis on the east side of the city. It's down in a valley, so quite protected, with lots of areas to sit on the grass or benches in both shade and sun. It's easily accessible by tram and well used by both families and people wanting quiet time. It's big enough to have some privacy if that's what you're after. The trees and ponds are lovely..it's one of my favourite spots for taking photographs in different light and weather conditions (it's very pretty in winter snow!).
