Used to be good and now is even better. A great place to visit not he weekend with or without the family. Markets are on the weekends, beach style pool, bbq facilities. Take a ferry ride and save on parking fees.

Very accessible, Ramps down to the market area and pool, and lifts up from the car park and up the the second story pubs and restaurants. The rest is all gently sloping paths. But it does get crowded
