Ornate gateways and boundary railings complete it’s sweet look. There’s a lake at its centre, where fishing is a popular activity. There’s a moderate number of wildlife at the park, including deer. People mostly visit for leisure facilities such as the bowling green, the tennis court, the basketball court and the children’s play area.
