A hidden jem in the heart of downtown. It is like you are walking in a different country. I believe most Sudburians are not aware of this site.

Located unexpectedly by the downtown it certainly is a hidden gem. Gorgeous to see it is very popular for photos.

It was full of beautiful sculptures and conveniently located in town. It may take about 30 mins to see the full park but it has a great view of the international bridge and was a great place to visit.
