May have been a great concept but now is very rundown. Fountain not working as far as we could see. Needs a makeover.

Next to Queens Square, this is a busy thoroughfare for various cut throughs in town. It’s got the Playhouse Theatre, LFC Shop, a pub or two and the usual smelly burger mobile joints. Great in summer when the water feature is spraying.
