Neat little park in the CBD. Lots of bench space to relax and enjoy 20 mins listening to birds. The trees are amazing. They span over and on the walkway, some branches are supported by steel pipes.

This is an unusual little woodland area with twisted trees growing across the paths. Its only small so worth a quick look. Very mysterious looking.

It is a park with unique features, Giant Trees Stumps, just at the surface of the ground, and the big branches are bending at every direction. So big and bent, the big branches are blocking the pathways. People have to bend when passing under theses...More
